Hyperrealism VII

In this hyper-confusing world, were his opinions are facts, according mr. T. and facts just are untrue opinions, if they are published by the lying journalists of CNN) , we can expect that the Museums become Zoos and probably Zoos become Museums.

Valrie Blass (born 1967) is a Canadian artist working primarily in sculpture. She lives and works in her hometown of Montreal, Quebec. She received both her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts, specializing in visual and media arts, from the Universit du Qubec Montral. She employs a variety of sculptural techniques, including casting, carving, moulding, and bricolage to create strange and playful arrangements of both found and constructed objects.
In a 2011 article in the Canadian magazine The Walrus, her practice of sculptural assemblage was compared to artists such as Marcel Duchamp and Louise Bourgeois. Her work has been collected by the National Gallery of Canada, Muse d'art contemporain de Montral, the Royal Bank of Canada, and several other private collections.
