Ferdinand Langlois


Ferdinand Langlois. Sculptor. Woodcarver. Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec. Active 1960’s-1970’s.

Ferdinand Langlois used ‘as found’ materials in his work. He used tree stumps and other smaller parts to make people, bird houses, chairs that looked like people and tables and benches. They were often massive in size and they were left uncoloured and unfinished. He was first mentioned in Les Patenteux du Quebec.
