Mesplé visits his roots in foundry work with these unique sculptures. Recalling his interest in archaeology, the sculptures are anatomically correct and are produced in his advanced lost-wax technique.
His methodology supersedes his years, and is reflected in the immaculate works brought to life by his expert hand through intense and often ironic imagery.
Hundreds of hours went into the creation of this life-size skeleton made of bronze and steel. The work dives deep into the conundrums of human culture. Titled in Latin after the first word ever recorded to mean pathological liar, 'Pseudologia Fantastica' offers a flash of the truth and insight to a darker mind.
The smirking figure will forever be addicted to the evil joys of his tangling idiocies placing himself powerfully at the center of trust and betrayal.

The artist designed the machine as a commentary on the recurring, far fetched claims of sighting images of prophets in strange, unassuming places. The work has been featured in multiple galleries with an overwhelming response to its heat activated brand.
Mesplé has made reproducible images of other prophets including Mother Teresa and The Pope.
