The works are a bas-relief made with plaster on canvas, then pigmented with cocoa. After a very thin layer of resin, the painting is finished with oil paints.
This collection of works created to remember, if anything the need arose, that the style of figurative painting, symbolism and, as the author points out the works to follow even abstract art, were conceived by primitive man, in the caves of prehistory, at least in their embryonic stage. Some colored geometric shapes, found in cave paintings, symbols designed and coded by Professor André Leroi Gourhan, are reviewed, transfigured, idealized, dreamed, reinvented in the works of Andrea Benetti, who wants to make a fitting tribute to the true origins of abstract art and those who invented it.
Andrea Benetti is an Italian visual artist. His works are present in museums and private collections around the world. From many years his art has been the subject of university research. He has collaborated with John Hopkins University, the Universities of Bologna, Bari, Ferrara, Lecce, Bergamo and Roma Tre. On the occasion of the acquisition of his works, Benetti was received at the Quirinale, the Vatican and the Chamber of Deputies.
