Franco DeFrancesca, "Depatterning," 2013, Pigment Print on Panel with Resin, 30 x 72 in.
Newzones is pleased to present Tune In, Turn On... a solo exhibition by Franco DeFrancesca.
Opening reception Saturday September 21, 1-4 pm.
As a multidisciplinary artist since 2004, DeFrancesca has been exhibiting sculpture/installation, photography, digital art and sound art, exploring narratives and representations that materialize notions of media, technology, art history, and pop culture.
DeFrancesca explores digital media as a mode of creating abstraction in the form of an art object. He investigates the links between art and memory, history and technology, by using digital imaging as a means to navigate the territory between photography and painting, mixing references to photography, painting and display technology. These vibrantly coloured works represent reflections on contemporary visual culture charmed by minimalism and modernism, technology and futurism. His work recalls the colour-field and the elemental geometry of mid to late twentieth century post painterly abstraction, minimalism and op-art.
DeFrancesca has exhibited in Canada and the United States and has been collected by various private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe.
