It seems that sometimes hide the stones of the sentences that fail to exit. These projects combine poetry and very simple designs. Despite Bettini is recognizable in the works of a certain linguistic unity, yet his work is divided in chapters, each reflecting the stages of awareness of the artistic work, as the search path through the ideal experimental technique. For the artist the tools, techniques and objects are both object and subject of research by extending and making it increasingly clear that the gesture of the hand maneuver them. The action is instinctive, but not random, the following needs and impulses deep. It 'a first primordial space formulation, translation of tactile sensations in visible images. With these original works, Bettini creates an aesthetic operation; wants to undermine the certainty that each of us has accumulated over time and the artist's condition and the purpose of art. Give priority to an underlying meaning as a necessary attribute for any artistic work, consider the artist as a guru or an intellectual who still has the "secret", alchemy, it is common convention. Here on the contrary it seems that everything is put into question: the themes, techniques and materials, even the final outcome until the end the outcome is uncertain ...

The number of fish such as piranhas, stripped to the bone does not stop to amaze us and draw us as a stylistic figure of the oxymoron, the merry malice, dead life, or the sad laugh. So at this point we approach the works as a zoom photo to find out the puzzle of figures. We realize that there is something other than mere game graphics, there is perhaps a journey that becomes a nightmare dream, a suffering that implements a catharsis. The story in fact leads us to no end to watch and relate these small treasures such tables modern primitive. The magic of these works lies in the recognition that we find ourselves in the story atavistic artist. Tap the collective unconscious, stirs up emotions and thoughts, these feelings and symbols of human history. Needless to investigate the path close to boost his poetic artist, reveal a strong emotion and sincerity of execution. A skilled hand that gives us an art seemingly playful. A child's laughter as a warning that touches us deeply conscious.
