PAINTINGS of the 80's
ROSA, ROSAE, ROSAE Symbolic and Surrealistic
Just a small sample of the work of the 80's.We will add more pieces as time allows.
The rose became
the predominant symbol of Benini's work from the early 70's. His memories
of his grandmother's garden in Italy where roses were often the size of
dinner plates left a strong impression in his early years. As an artist,
he chose the symbol to explore the power of line and color, shape and
design. The rose was featured in his symbolic and surrealistic periods
through the years.
