Sculptor Inspiration for series - Maskull Lasserre

The sculpture I am choosing as the inspiration for my series is Maskull Lasserre. Lasserre is a Canadian sculptor, born in 1978. He spent the early years of his life living in South Africa, which seems to the the inspiration for a variety of his pieces. Most of Lasserre's works have an anatomical touch, which portray the reality and fine, extraordinary detail of organisms, without being precisely simple. He is said to "induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected." This mysterious anecdote intrigues me to explore the array of works by Lassarre, and attempt to understand his motivations.
