Part of a series of images from the liquid metal, carbo-plastic, hydrogel and permacrete core of visual creators on the Internet.  Images that stir my senses and evoke plots and concepts for what I’d like to see (or fear) in the future.

French artist Françoise Nielly has that rare added dimension to her work that rubs against the invisible outer layers of your mind to generate a sort of subconscious thermal shock.  You look, and then you stare – captivated, sensing something else going on beyond the caustic smears and angles of paint.  I would love to have one of these massive prints up on my walls – if only I had enough walls left to hang more art!  :o)

There are aspects of graphic novels combined with the furious experimentation in colour and medium that hallmark the 1980s.  This is the art for cyborgs, or the AI shard that’s been bifurcated from the central mind to go out into the world within a insanely advanced chassis to carry out some function or other.

Maybe a bipedal skeleton of carbonised-steel foam and titanium wire mesh; with layers snymov built up around this, replicating the human musculature system.  It could have had it wrapped in vat-grown synthetic flesh but instead opted to leave most of the grey-blue electric muscle tissue exposed, whilst key areas were covered by decorative armour plating – the mind revelling in the exposure of the artefacts that define what it is to be human.


Françoise Nielly’s art is a study of human form distorted through the lens of augmented visual senses.  What more we can see when we close our eyes and open our minds.
