Painting with the Spirit
Robert Ben?ez was born in Ronda (M?aga) Spain, 1958.
The enigmatic and abstract gesturel, expresionist Spanish painter investigates in the preludes of other existences, in worlds which are conformed by subtle energies or not, that flow in the space, in our own space-time and in other spaces who are not within the reach of human brain.
His works, four in one, eight in one, it is to say, eight works in a same work, eight different paintings, according to position and angle of contemplation, point of view of spectator, form a pictorial creation which separates from usual canons, which fits in the energetic wasting of trascending itself to go beyond matter.
Suddenly, in his plastic speech characters appear, faces of beings who are there, but, simultaneously, they are in the dynamics of the subtle thing, insinuated, overflowing and exceeded energies that overcome the canon of the established, because they appear to the spectator.
Its work is a new contribution to the present contemporary painting because it is based on his hability to evoke transcendence from the existing energy but without falling in ambiguous subtleties.
