The Supplement: Francesa Dalla Benetta

Following yesterday's Jordu Schell showcase, more monsters now - courtesy of fx artist and sculptor, Francesa Dalla Benetta...

"My work is about the sensations suggested by grotesque anatomies. I want people to be intrigued by the possibility of impossible bodies, I want people to imagine the feeling of touch skins and textures. My attention goes to the topics of hybridization, transformation, self identity and the bizarre. I'm inspired by the unusual, by what is behind the first impression, in shapes and meanings. I believe that Art is Beauty, but to me it means neither harmony nor balance. It rather implies the capacity of seeing beyond the appearance, the tenderness in an ugly body. It is finding something very special, maybe inexplicable, that makes feel attracted to the unconventional. My art intends to give a different perception of Beauty, to force paradigms to look at things in a new way. It's about feel pleasure in see unpleasant forms. That is why my art celebrates Unconventional Beauty."
