Denis DeFrancesco is a contemporary artist known for his shocking and provocative sculptures. The “pink lady ” modern sculpture is another work where the modern artist entering the fantasy world into an artistic journey.
The work of Denis Defrancesco does not leave anyone indifferent, it brings to our thought a strong feeling of shock, amuse, provoke.
“A Thousand and One Women.in ONE ” this is how the artist describes this contemporary sculpture. A polished and smooth marble sculpture doll. A critic of our society values, he transforms a discarded object into an artwork, and nothing is more ephemeral than marble. The details are unexpected and the way he recreates and explains this woman, this modern art object, lead us into a surreal symbolism.
“The body calibrated for stereotypical ardors. Unfussy tattoos, curls for artifice, silicone up to the gunwales, seams ready to split: The Pink Lady, Doll of the Quick Fuck”
“We would like her to speak… To pronounce words sounds other than the conventional onomatopoeia of fawning pleasures… The Mmmm, the Aaaah, or the Ooooh… Letters that would form real words… No: nothing to be done, nothing to be said”
“A voiceless, unsmiling, soulless doll, her slits like bottomless pits, a humorless, joyless Doll… We will never see her heart or her feet, forever sealed in Carrara stone… A non-finito modern Galatea, his off-putting Pygmalion… The sculptor’s dream, his Ladies of yesteryear”
