  • About the work
Medium: acrylic on canvas and resin. The work of Florence Di Benedetto is created from a photographic shot and it is printed on paper sheets. Each single sheet reproduces a portion of the photo. The artist then applies the leaves on a white canvas to recompose the image in its entirety. The surface of the canvas is rubbed with a wet cloth so that the inks on the paper move on the fabric of the canvas itself. Following this phase, Di Benedetto removes wet paper, and paints with acrylic and resin the trace of the inks that the paper has released on the canvas.

About the Artist

1975 , Italy

Florence Di Benedetto was born in Bari in 1975 by French mother and Italian father. After graduating in Fine Arts in the United States, he graduated from the Italian Institute of Photography in Milan in 1998. He works as a fashion photographer and "still-life" and at the same time he undertakes a personal research focused on the contamination between photography and painting. In 2001 he exhibited for the first time his work at the Ken Damy Museum of Contemporary Photography in Brescia. He began collaborating with photographer Maurizio Galimberti and for two years he dedicated himself to deepening the artistic potential of instant photography. In 2002 he participates in the Paris Biennial of Photography with the Caractère Gallery. In recent years, his work has focused on the processing of the portrait and the metropolitan landscape as well as on the development of images transfer techniques with more traditional instruments, reflexes and b / w film on canvas, and their subsequent pictorial reinterpretation. He exhibited his works in Personal Exhibitions at Galleria 196 and Il Sole Arte Contemporanea in Rome and at the Fu Xin Gallery in Shanghai. In 2010, he opened with a solo show at the Galleria Glauco Cavaciuti, centered on the metropolitan city of New York. In February 2011 Di Benedetto was selected for the Finale of the Arte Laguna Prize, which took place at the Arsenal's Nappa in March. In June 2011, Galleria Glauco Cavaciuti presented a second personal show on the city of Milan, and in May 2017, Cavaciuti opens its own exhibition season with its "Details", the new cycle of Di Benedetto's works. His latest publication is November 2007, Florence is present with his work in the volume "13 × 17", edited by Philippe Daverio and edited by Rizzoli, a book that represents a look at art and contemporary Italian artists.
