  • About the work

It is the dialogue between me and the painting that makes the finished artwork it is never me.

Laura Benetton

#CURATORPILLS

Laura Benetton (The Dolomites, Italy, 1981). Her works are a continuous dialogue between Art and Science. Her first installation project was a multidisciplinary piece of light, sounds, and painting.  In 2008 she has been awarded for the prestigious Arnaldo Pomodoro’s artist in residence.


About the Artists

, Italy

Laura Benetton is a London based Italian artist. She studied painting in Venice at the prestigious Academy of Fine Art. Her career as an artist started in Italy after her degree. In 2008 she has been awarded for the prestigious Arnaldo Pomodoro’s artist in residence. She spent three months in Urbino researching metals and studying sculpture, culminating in the creation of a wall metal sculpture for the Pomodoro’s foundation. After the residence she spent a few years traveling between Venice, Istanbul, Pesaro, and Florence, gaining broad artistic experience and the use of different materials and techniques.

Her first solo exhibition was in Venice at ‘Palazzo Boldu’ in 2008 that brought her to be selected by A+A gallery to create her first installation project: a multidisciplinary installation of light, sounds, and painting. In 2009 she moved to Istanbul, where she spent a year focusing on her painting technique; then Pesaro, where she explored sculpture, resin, and large-scale painting and worked as a scenographer and painter for the theatre and for the Maestro Luigi Pizzi. In 2010 she moved to London. While in London, in 2012 she has been selected to exhibit at the Italian Embassy. Since 2014 she is a resident artist in the Wimbledon Art Studios while being represented by different galleries in the UK, Italy and the USA and exhibited in international art fairs and shows across the world.

Laura Benetton’s work has held in private and public collections and commissioned for many private projects including private residences and corporations by art consultants and galleries in London and abroad. Her work has been selected for a different number of art residences and in 2016 she has been awarded to exhibit at the Houses of Parliament for the exhibition “Tomorrow’s child”. Selected exhibitions have included The Houses of Parliament; Zari Gallery, London; Gallery Claire Corsica, Paris, New York; Affordable art fairs; A+A Gallery, Venice; Art065 Gallery, Pesaro; Galerja Mazchek, Croatia; Degree Art; Vyner Street Gallery, London.

 In 2019 she has been granted a month-long artist residency in Shenzhen, China where she had the opportunity to explore intensively her neon installation artwork and challenge her light-sculpture research. 

About her work

Laura’s artistic research focuses on the correlation between Nature and Science, between the butterflies and bird species of the rain forest and their color interdependence related to light-waves energy and frequencies.

The center of her work is the action, fragmented, dissolved into abstraction and the study of color related to the movement. Working with acrylic and mixed media to create a vibrating and energetic multimedia painting, at times she aims to challenge the boundaries of painting by inserting a neon as external elements for a balance in a composition that aims to establish a subjective relationship with the viewer as the artwork becomes an experience rather than a mere object.
