ANGEL DEL INDIFERENCIA (Angel of Indifference in Spanish) is a epoxy and plaster sculpture of a phocomelic creature pictured as an angel.
The artist wanted to represent this terrible deformity and malformation as a beauty, and decided to give it an angel shape, with long fingers instead of wings. It is part of a larger project called Unconventional Beauty, where the artist is interested in working with fantastic creatures and deformed anatomies in order to find the fascination and the tenderness in the ugly.
She looks for an anti-classical esthetics, more interested in what can shock and call the attention. Francesca is experimenting with materials and with forms, and this is her very firs collection as a sculptor.
Her influences in this period are fantastic movies and literature, Sci-Fi, cyberpunk, filmmakers as Lynch, Cronenberg and Swankmayer. She is interested in dreams as a way to cut off rationality from choices.
