The theorist of theatre studies and art critic Eleni Varopouloucomments thuson Benforado’s work: “[…] Benforado’s quest results in the production of mental landscapes, before which the viewer can muse, imagine places and moments overtaken by forces of nature, like wind or fire, experiences the recall of a cosmological phenomenon, just before things assumed shapes and became visual elements. There is even the feeling that behind all the layers of paint, in these paraphrased landscapes that invoke the outwordly, Genesis and Revelation may emerge”.
