"Luminous Streams# Transcendental Art

Currents of energy intertwining
In infinite space combining,
Colors, textures, and forms designing,
The elements of nature defining,
To music and dance inclining,
A sublime vision of life divining.

About Bennecelli's Art

After 50+ years of studying, practicing, and teaching art, Bennecelli was inspired by a vision in a dream in 2020 of an enchanting, illuminated object which twisted and turned and resembled a DNA double helix embellished with colorful, floral elements. That vision was the inspiration for him to create a series of well over a hundred paintings on the theme of what he calls "Luminous Streams.#
He views his paintings two ways -- first, as beautiful, engaging decorative designs and second, in more depth, as images that portray elements of a reality and forces of nature beyond the realm of the five senses. It is a transcendental vision which is a prime example of the benefits to both mind and body revealed through the recent research in the fields of neuroaesthetics and neurographics.

To be precise, the major theme of Bennecelli's art is the timeless beauty of the rhythmic energy of life uniting art, music, and dance through expressive lines, textures, and radiant colors. This is portrayed in a calligraphic form which engages the mind in very positive ways.

Perhaps surprisingly, he does not consider his paintings to be abstract art, but rather, he sees them as embodying a new vision of reality, revealing the energy and forces at work throughout all existence. Indeed, his art is all about a vision that corresponds on one level to quantum physics string theory as well as advanced biology and psychology.

He believes it is important that we balance the sciences with the arts, and this is exactly what his art does.

The “Luminous Streams” paintings are all created intuitively and spontaneously with minimal preliminary sketches or plans. In this way, they bring to consciousness, images (just as the vision in his dream) of reality perceived by the subconscious mind.

His art has become his teacher and mystical guide -- presenting a way for him to gain insight and to grow in his awareness of our beautiful, shared reality beyond the realm of the five senses.

Each painting is composed of just four lines (red, blue, green, and white). These colors are symbolic of emotions, intellect and spirit, physical being, and the self. Four is a significant number, e.g., four fundamental forces of the universe, four points on a compass, four seasons of the year, four classical elements, etc.

Each of the four lines enters and exits the canvas at the edges. This implies that the configuration of lines within the limits of the canvas is part of a much larger, even infinite, network.

These paintings are amazingly luminous, something which unfortunately cannot be photographed accurately. Their luminosity was created using a five-hundred-year-old technique of applying layers of transparent paint over a brightly colored ground to achieve what has been called the "Venetian Glow.” The technique was developed by the Renaissance painters of Venice, Italy.

Bennecelli's color palette is based on a color system of four complementary pairs. He does not use the traditional red-yellow-blue primary system. In fact, he developed his own system after studying color properties extensively as they relate to the spectrum, our vision, and color mixing. He has studied all the major color systems including Ostwald, Munsell, and Birren.

In addition to the shapes created by the four lines, there are two additional elements in his paintings.

First, there are small dots extending from the forms into the black void of the background. These imply rotation and help us see that the forms exist within the background and are not simply cut-outs sitting on top of the background.

Second, there are vertical or horizontal strips in many of the paintings which appear to contain archaic writing. These strips are darkly subdued in color and at first are not usually noticed. They offer a contrast between the organic forms and the geometric, the emotions and the intellect. They also imply that there is an important message contained within the paintings which is both ancient and mysterious. The strips add a sense of the mystical to the whole composition.

These paintings are truly different from Bennecelli's previous work over fifty years which includes calligraphy, realistic portraits in oils and pastels, pen and ink illustrations, monotypes, and geometric shaped canvases. He views his artwork for the past four years as the realization of his lifelong quest to create art that is truly authentic and meaningful. Thankfully it has also been enthusiastically received by the public.
