Francesco Albano

francesco-albano-04Francesco Albano is an artist who creates flesh-like sculptures giving the skin a different texture and consistency and sometimes having a liquid like features which almost de-humanises it, making it feel as if it is almost melting. He uses skin and bone to show the pressures we go through in everyday life and psychological violence on the human body. He explores the skin as a limit and an identity, that interacts with the outer world. He uses latex, rubber, wax and other chemicals to create the skin in this form. His work for me feels as if the being has shed its skin and boundaries it held and has become free from its restrictions highlighting on how we may feel our skin being like and how it may constrict us and make us feel. The skin is almost like a cage, the skin lying there is like it has deflated and the soul of the person has been set free.
