About the Work

Like a fragment of blurred film, abstract shapes saturated in red, fuschia, violet, and blue flicker across this square archival chromogenic print. The image is mounted on a hand crafted multilayered wood base and both are precisely coated in high gloss resin. "Recalling the hard-edged color-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." Combining craftsmanship with digital technology in an attempt to create a hybrid art object, the series call to mind 'the sophisticated ideal' of modernity, high technology and urbanity as desired both personally and culturally" Franco DeFrancesca A native of Toronto, Franco DeFrancesca graduated from OCAD in 1990 and returned to the University of Guelph in 2004-05 to further his studies after 15 years working as a graphic designer. Defrancesca's work is included in corporate and private collections across North America, Australia and Europe.
