In his sculptures and drawings, Thomas Lerooy (born 1981) conjures a fantastical world probing the flaws that define man’s mental and physical limits. Lerooy’s drawings celebrate tradition reaching back to Leonardo da Vinci, but also recall the vanitas paintings of the seventeenth century melded with the grotesque humor of James Ensor.
