Looking at Simone's works, one will surely find more questions than answers.
The expression of the object
Simone Benedetto's method consists of using several materials, such as semi-precious stones, bronze, cement, resin, and silicone.
This chosen approach by the artist illustrates the theme of the relationship between Man and his obsessions.
His sculptures have a great, clear and explicit visual impact. They push us to think on the effects of our growing addiction to technologies, social networks and the internet.
The isolation of the individual
His works are similar to captures of our daily lives which invite the viewer to self-reflect and point out the contradictions of our modern societies.
The most recurring theme in the artist's art pieces is the relationship between Man and his gadgets.
