ABSTRACTISM
OF
THE ORIGINS

Exhibition

The exhibition in September 2022 is "ABSTRACTISM OF THE ORIGINS" by Italian artist Andrea Benetti.

ABSTRACTISM OF THE ORIGINS 

This collection of works was created to remind us that the main styles of painting (figurative), symbolism and abstractionism) in their embryonic phase, had already been conceived and created by primitive man, in the caves of prehistory. Some colored geometric shapes, present in the cave paintings, symbols designed and codified by Professor André Leroi Gourhan, are revised, transfigured, idealized and reinvented in the works of Andrea Benetti, whose purpose is to pay a well-deserved homage to the true origin of abstractionism. This collection of works consists of bas-reliefs made with plaster on canvas and subsequently antiqued with natural substances such as cocoa, turmeric, henna, karkadè, coffee and finished with oil colors.his collection of works is created to recall the styles of figurative painting, symbolism and abstract art, conceived by primitive man, in the caves of prehistory, in its embryonic stage. Some colored geometric shapes, found in cave paintings, symbols designed and codified by Professor André Leroi Gourhan, are reviewed, transfigured, idealized, reimagined and reinvented in the works of Andrea Benetti, whose aim is to pay deserved homage to the true origin of art abstract. This collection of works is composed of bas-reliefs created with chalk on canvas and subsequently antiqued with natural substances such as cocoa, turmeric, henna, karkadè, coffee and finished with oil colors.

Andrea Benetti

Artist

Born in 1964, Andrea Benetti created and drew up the "Manifesto of Neo-Cave Art" presented at the 53rd Venice Biennale, in the pavilion called "Nature and Dreams", located at the Ca 'Foscari University. Conceptually, the Manifesto is inspired by the genesis of art. In his works, Andrea Benetti cites, transfigures, plays, reinvents concepts and forms of Cave painting, creating an ideal bridge between the genesis of art and its contemporaneity. He has collaborated and still collaborates to the realization of projects with various Italian and foreign universities, including the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Bologna, Ferrara, Roma Tre, Lecce, Bergamo, Bari. These universities have carried out research on his art. Benetti's works are present in collections all over the world. In addition to the museums of contemporary art in Italy and abroad and prestigious private collections, including the United Nations, his works are present in the Quirinale (seat of the President of the Italian Republic), in the Italian Parliament, in the Vatican, in various Embassies. For this reason, he was received at the Quirinale (seat of the President of the Italian Republic), in the Chamber of Deputies (the Italian Parliament) and in the Vatican, where he met Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. There are dozens of university professors and important art critics who have written about Benetti's art and have participated in the projects that the Italian painter has created. For several years the encyclopedic entry "Andrea Benetti" has been present in Treccani (the most important Italian encyclopedia) and is translated into thirty languages on Wikipedia. In 2020, Benetti was awarded the 49th “Nettuno d'Oro” award, the longest-running and most prestigious annual artistic award in the city of Bologna
