VIRTUAL SCULPTURES

Art by Francisco Mai

"These are virtual sculptures forged into the intangible substance of bits; three-dimensional models made of calculation and imagination, realistically lighted in complex and detailed rendering.

"The digital art of Francesco Mai is a kind of parallel development of the inorganic, paradoxes of zoology and metallic minerals crystallized in the findings of an alien or extraneous natural history, with a fantastic approach that slips to the the limits of anthropocentrism.

"I am is particularly attracted to the corroded surfaces worn by time as rust, mould, and crushed walls. The same attraction exists for materials physically opposed, as smooth surfaces, translucent and reflective, often used in artistic compositions creating a very strong balance and energy.

"I am Francesco Mai from Italy and I was born in Milan in 1972. I am a digital artist and a photographer. My research was born from the observation of the wonderful shapes of Nature, a research not only for the forms but also for the materials that I use in my sculptures. I love to create objects that don't exist but that are full of life and force, a force that takes place from twisting and sharp prickles: they are needed for protection, never for attack. But their defence could be deadly. Sure my past as biology student and my love for photography (that I still practice, especially in far and forgotten lands like Madagascar, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka and so on) has an influence on the final results of my works. I like to use procedural materials like rust and mould, opposite to the glass and shining, reflecting, polished materials that I mix together. A very strong balance takes place with this dualism. I often define my works "alien digital sculptures" because they were born from an organic concept but not terrestrial (or better, not from Mother Nature that we see with ordinarily eyes). Technically my works are rendering; that is, computer simulation, renderings of the objects that I create."
