This appears to be an angelic figure made of scrap metal.
I love the effect the outside display brings to the sculptures! I said that the last time we were here, too!
The prior sculpture and this one appear to be made through casting.
This is the art gallery looking toward the back.
This technique is called paint layering.
There were several ethereal figures on display created by Benini using aluminum and pigments. Enlarge the picture to check them out. The roses on the wall are on flat canvases.
One of Benini's specialties is creating perspective on a flat canvas. Standing right in front of a painting like this you have to touch it to believe that it is really flat!
More interesting paint layering and another fascinating ghostly figure!
Here is more paint layering!
I admire the artistic skill it takes to bring life to these abstract figures!
