Sculptures by Los Angeles-based visual artist Mashanda Lazarus.
“With my sculptures, my aim is to replicate (as closely as possible) functional everyday objects in an opposite material, rendering them useless. Through the loss of function, form gains importance. I tend to choose objects that I am familiar with, but whose beauty I have ignored. I love objects that are well worn and used, with scrapes and paint splatters. The details are important, and I love discovering them as I explore the object.”
