Laura Benetton’s work investigates the close relationship between art, nature and science: where color and movement intersect, dynamic, sophisticated and elegant contemporary artworks come to life. The exhibition offers the visitor the opportunity to interact and enter within this vibrant and energetic path, where the artist aims to challenge the boundaries of painting by inserting neon as an external element of research. The artworks on display represent in fact a wide and diversified range of medium used by Benetton: oils and acrylics, drawings, sketches and multidisciplinary works with neon light.
The scientific and mathematical aspect within her works emerges in the meticulous and precise drawings and sketches, in which trajectories and structures mark the importance of physical and mathematical laws as an indispensable part of the artist’s research. In fact, Laura Benetton’s eye looks at the physical structure of butterflies and birds, at their chromatic spectrum intricately connected to movement and light waves.
