Abstractism of the origins

These works are meant to remind the contemporary art world that the pictorial stylistic features of Abstractism, Figurative Art, and Symbolism, at least in their embryonic phase, were conceived by prehistoric man, in caves all over the world. The geometric shapes found in some cave paintings, the symbols studied by André Leroi Gourhan and his epigones, are revisited, transfigured, reinvented in Andrea Benetti’s works, to pay homage to the origins of Abstractionism.
