Artist’s wireframe-sketches-turned-light-sculptures trace the synthetic grotesque.

Franciose Gamma, Soul w/ Contour

Barcelona-based Franciose Gamma’s synthetic treatment of human form is more like Rodin than what some call, vaguely, contemporary net-art. Subsumed by currents both transcendent and excrutiating, the figures combusted offscreen for the first time in his recent gallery show in Wisconsin with American Fantasy Classics.

Drawing aesthetically from the early days of web-based graphics, Gamma’s low res hallucinations feature a uniquely hypnotic pulse of violence and eroticism.

Harnessing the power of rare crystals and secret lasers, the mesmerizing animations have been exhumed from the wilds of cyberspace for his first solo exhibition.
