In front of a smoky black background on a blue and purple grid structure, Benjamin Bronni composes segments of a triangle in cloudy light shades on a tondo to form some sort of big bang.

Choosing the round format alone, which last was allowed to be an emblem of perfection during the Renaissance and has since, however, - with good cause - rather been leading a life in the shadows, bears witness of receiving greater honour. Bronni's abstract geometric formations take on heraldic shapes, which - for good reason - are evocative of strong symbols such as the sun and stars. In connection with his spray technique, an unorthodox „constructivist spring" combining the emblematic with the chaotic, a self-endangering potential, appears in Bronni's expansive works. With regards to painting, this self-endangerment is located at both ends of the colour scale - vanishing in deep black or ethereal white. With regards to sculpting it lies in a weak balance of giant forms dominating the room in their strangeness.
