About

Intense pink and mint green concentric circles on an orange background. Mixed media - archival chromogenic print (1/1) mounted on wood panel. Work is sealed with resin in a high gloss finish. To see how these works look mounted on the wall, you may look at Franco Defrancesca video on youtube. Mixed media digital pop art wall sculpture. The work is created, printed on archival paper, mounted on a hand constructed multilayered wood base and then perfectly coated in resin. The result is a stunning, color saturated and high gloss work of art. A native of Toronto, Franco DeFrancesca graduated from OCA(D) in 1990 and returned to the University of Guelph in 2004-05 to further his studies after 15 years working as a graphic designer and in the renovation industry. As a multidisciplinary artist since 2004, Franco has been exhibiting art and art projects ranging from sculpture/installation, photography, digital art, and sound art, exploring narratives and representations that materialize notions of identity, the body, art history, media, and consumption culture. Resin coated and mounted to layers of plywood, these digital/mixed media 'picture objects' represent interpretations of contemporary visual culture charmed by minimalism, modernism, technology and futurism. Recalling the colour-field and the elemental geometry of mid to late twentieth century post painterly abstraction, minimalism and op-art, these works use digital imaging as a means to navigate the territory between photography and painting, mixing references to photography, painting and television display technology. Visualizing ephemeral and elusive environments of light, air, fission and liquid crystal luminescence, these works convey notions of the surreal and the sublime that elicit a variety of sensibilities from the quizzical, the mysterious and the light-hearted. Combining craftsmanship with digital technology in an attempt to create a hybrid art object, the “Plasma Gel” series call to mind 'the sophisticated ideal' of modernity, high technology and urbanity as desired both personally and culturally. His work is included in corporate and private collections across North America, Australia and Europe.
