Snarling punk attitude meets reserved Renaissance sculptures in the work of Barcelona-based artist Gerard Mas, a man who also has a penchant for blending humans and animals into bestial portraits. Fifteenth century ladies pick their noses and blow bubbles, sheep’s wool becomes a topiary-esque labyrinth, and fractal Romanesco broccoli morphs into a shower cap. As with Qixuan Lim’s tiny baby head sculptures , Mas is also interested in infants, placing them atop pigs and in other odd scenarios. Whatever the material and subject matter, Mas’s work is surreal, humorous, and always bitingly satirical.
