Kárlet Benatti

Born: 1965

Hometown: Verona

Based in: Grezzana

 

I was born in Verona in 1965, Italy.
In 1987 I moved to Milan to study Architecture at the Politecnico where I got the degree in 1990. Encouraged by the artist Ada Zanon Marisaldi, who appreciated my early paintings, I went to Berlin to meet and know some German artists among the Neuen Wilden. During those years I travelled all along Europe to discover the great art Museums.
After my first solo show at Galleria Ferrari, in 1990 I moved to New York to attend the School of Visual Arts. I had a show at the Cristopher Leonard Gallery and at the end of the 1992 Tompkins Square clashes I came back to Italy settling in a large run-down building in the old town of Verona. For a few years I hosted several local artists deciding to offer them a space to work.
In 1992 I collaborated in the realization of "Invita"  - a cycle of exhibitions - curated by Erno Vroonen with artists such as Anish Kapoor, Giuseppe Penone and Julian Opie.
In 2005 I found an old farm on the slopes of the Lessini mountains, near Verona, where I moved to live in Nature with my family.

About Kárlet Benatti


IconInspires

What inspires you?

My paints are about space; I break up the rules of visual perception to show what's beyond because I feel reality, as it appears, is just a huge misunderstanding; my art blend the rules and reveals what the eyes can't get. We are used to belive in what we see, even if we feel it's just an illusion. My paints catch the illusion and break up reality.
