Eugenia Benabib’s painting is no theater of life or mirror of the world. Her work doesn’t nourish from a pictoric tradition that tries to continue or retracts, the tradition that it follows is that of a more artistic look where the act of creation is the mirror in which it contemplates itself. It is an unfaithful mirror where the objects have broken their similarities with the reality of the world; and creation barely remains but for an instant, that witnesses the broken rebeliousness of those objects that resist to take part in a grammar that is able to dissolve them.
