About a week ago I visited a favorite museum of mine De Pont in Tilburg. They had an exhibition of Giuseppe Penone, an Italian artist. Penone is the younger member of the Italian movement named 'Arte Povera' (poor art). Penone's work is concerned with establishing a contact between man and nature. The exhibition was quite big but only showed a small part of his beautiful and interesting work. The 'paintings' above look like the pattern on a handpalm from far off. But getting closer you see the big canvas is filled with thousands of Acacia thorns. Very impressive.
