MASKULL LASSERRE – ARTIST BIO

 
Maskull Lasserre was born 1978 in Calgary, Alberta. He spent his early childhood in South Africa and returned to Canada to settle in the Ottawa area. He studied visual art and philosophy at Mount Allision University (Sackville, NB), and sculpture at Concordia University (Montreal, QC). He now lives and works in Montreal, QC.

Lasserre’s drawings and sculptures explore the unexpected potential of the everyday and its associated structures of authority, class, and value. Elements of nostalgia, allegory, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that
induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.

Lasserre has been awarded several public sculpture commissions, including for the Shenkman Arts Center (City of Ottawa). He has exhibited work across Canada, and is represented in the collections of the Government of Canada (Transport Canada, DND), Canada Council for the Arts, and the City of Ottawa. He is also a recent participant in the Canadian Forces War Artist Program in Afghanistan. [Source]
