Rossano B Maniscalchi, ‘Fu King Cheap’, ca. 2014, Screaming Abdabs Gallery

‘Fu King Cheap ’ is a limited edition (1/10) fine art photograph, by Rossano B Maniscalchi, which brings a new meaning to ‘the art of technology’. It forms a portrait of three delicately framed asian women, each with chopsticks in hand, poised to dine on raw printed and surface mounted circuit boards. Their bodies form an assembly line, in three colour options, which is superimposed, with an element of transparency, onto the fluid transmission lines of an enlarged circuit board. This transparency reflects the superficial and hedonistic nature of those considered to be perfect people wrapped up in their uninhibited pursuit of the very latest that technology can offer as fingertip bling. The power of this vibrant luxurious image is in the way that it celebrates and echoes the scientific achievement of circuit boards. Equally it delivers beauty, elegance and electric positivity on a superficial level while also conveying the repetitive, prefabricated and standardized world that mass technology aims to deliver.

‘Fu King Cheap ’ is a limited edition fine art photograph created by the highly collectable Italian photographer Rossano B Maniscalchi. Offered in 10 limited editions which are exclusively available at the ‘Screaming Abdabs Gallery’. The print quality is a minimum 300 dpi in four colour CMYK.
