It should come as no surprise that we are once again featuring one of artist Maskull Lasserre’s works. After all, we are big fans and his creations are mind-boggling and undoubtedly one of a kind.
For his new project, Lasserre carefully carved a large tree trunk into a realistically-looking frayed rope. It is suspended using a thick metal chain and carved in the midsection to look like a rope about to snap. Lassere intended to only use the middle part to preserve the integrity of the tree including its natural shape. But it is so intricate and so real that even the texture feels like the real thing.
The project, which Lasserre has so fittingly entitle the Schrodinger’s Wood, only proves the artist’s fascinating way of inducing “strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.” His highly impressive carving skills have made us big fans and are sure to earn more from the public.
His book entitled “Pendulum” is available for purchase and includes his past sculptures.
