With works in large and small format, done on canvas, paper and board, as well as bronze and painted steel sculptures, Bennàssar uses the figure as a point of departure to create works that recall a greco-Roman neo-Classicism. Presented from a clearly modernist perspective that suggests at first glance the paintings of Picasso or Matisse, Bennàssar places his figures, either solitary or as a group, in an amorphous background that manifests an evident ease for drawing and show a sensibility and lyricism that is quintessentially Mediterranean.
The figures are drawn in white with a sure hand, free of erasures, occupying a space, serene and meditative that evokes a great peace and tranquility. In the rest of the paintings, a damsel, a pair of lovers, a head or group of young lads appear in similar neutral spaces, characterized by abstract backgrounds, gesturally painted or drawn on the reverse of some poster ripped off a wall. With his bronzes, Bennàssar continues his exploration of the figure, presenting torsos of women molded with an expressionistic and vital strength.
