frankiezafe is a pseudo i use for my online presence.
It appeared in the the early 00's .
I kept it because my family name is generally hard to spell in english  (the 'j' & the 'g') and difficult to pronounce by non-french speakers.
And also because i like it.

This is the "official" section of my website, by opposition to the lab.
The purpose of this section is to present my work in a short and non-technical way, sorted by common categories in visual art, such as "digital" or "paper".
If you dig a bit lower, you'll understand that i don't care about these convenient categorisation of art. See "about" for more details.

[en] Through this series of generative paintings, we explore the raw material that are the contemporary pornographic videos. Each slaughter develops an aspect in touch with these productions: the pleasure, the sensualism, the disappearance of the individual, the violence, the suffering, etc.
The rare understandable tracks suggest rather that they show the sexual intercourse, bringing a painterly sensuality in generated images.

Les rares traces compréhensibles suggèrent plutôt qu'elles ne montrent le rapport sexuel, ramenant une sensualité picturale dans les images générées.
