Christopher's selections

Maskull Lasserre

Montreal, QC, Canada

"I am consistently impressed with the quality and inventive nature of Maskull's sculptural works. There is a exceptional amount of wit paired with extremely proficient craft in everything he creates, each new endeavor is unexpected and wonderful."

Gregory Euclide

Minneapolis, MN

"Upon encountering Euclide's installations for the first time I can't understate the powerful understanding I felt exploring the valleys, rivers, and structures that seem to sprout and flow from the canvas."

Naoko Ito

New York, NY

"On Colossal I love to share work that while easily understandable at first glance, also leaves a lasting, unforgettable impact. Naoko Ito's segmented tree branches easily fall into that category, you're immediately struck with the typical "why didn't I think of that?" moment, but then realize wow absurdly complex each sculpture must be to create."

Lisa Nilsson

North Adams, MA

"Lisa Nilsson is probably one of my favorite artists. Her splendid quilled paper anatomy pieces made my jaw drop the first time I saw them, and it's been so exciting to see the attention her work has gotten over the past few months."

Peter Callesen

Copenhagen, Denmark

"We've all tried our hand at basic origami, and perhaps even cut out a strand of gingerbread men using folded sheets of paper for Christmas, but Callesen takes these same skills to an entirely different level, turning a single white sheet of paper into a museum-worthy sculptural object."
