Francesco LoCastro (b. 1976, Catania, Italy) creates work that examines the underlying nodes that make up physical reality through the use of historically grounding visual elements, reminiscent of Italian Futurism, 1980’s analog computer graphics, and art deco color palettes. At its center lies a drive to recollect and arrest memories, marked by displacement and loss, as well as a future-forward aesthetic that dares to question the boundaries of biology and technology, the physical and the virtual, charting a holistic, common space within the increasingly fluid boundaries that are shaping contemporary culture.
