Monument Man. | Stephane Parain.

Stephane Parain‘s work is like time traveling on acid. Parain, a sculptor who lives and works in Paris, creates pieces that resemble classic Victorian busts—but with a surreal twist. Faces features visages distorted by glitches, obscured by masks and framed by antlers. One of his pieces, a skull with a pried open jaw, rings with plaintive mortality. Parain successfully appropriates classic technique, resulting in a fresh, powerful aesthetic.
