Abstract Paintings by Benini
THE MEDITATION SERIES
"After seventeen Face of God paintings, a break entered the canvas, an opening... unexpected - another journey into the personal unknown – it has become the Meditation series". –Benini
THE FACE OF GOD SERIES
THE KAOS SERIES
"During the last few years here in Texas I have been working on the Faces of God series. The God I was portraying had nothing to do with religious icons or established beliefs - identities man has created from the beginning of man time. It was more a quest for an abstract essence: universal in spirit. I used color, my lifetime ally, with all its powers and varieties." - Benini
This series reflected the growing fascination of Benini with the newest science: chaos. While related to the pointillists and the work of the abstract expressionists (Pollock, in particular) this technique allowed Benini a free-flowing exploration into the great unknown. A child-like approach to color leads the composition into unexpected effects that become new maps of the unconscious.
