Lance Oscarson

Visual Art – Salt Lake City

Multifaceted artist Lance Oscarson crafts amazing mythical beasts and mechanical men out of cardboard. The Utah-based artist\'s works are steampunk and dieselpunk creations that pop-off their respective panels, seemingly lying somewhere between collage and sculpture. Having worked with a number of mediums in several professions over the decades—from paper and metal to leather—Oscarson has embarked on a new venture that seeks to resurge specific subsets of the cyperpunk genre. His collection of cardboard art incorporates the basic thematic elements, including a mechanical presence of technology fused with a vintage aesthetic. The artist even adds a metallic appearance to his cleverly crafted sculptures, heightening their visual effect.
