Giuseppe Penone







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.

  1. Tag - you're it! I really can't remember what this award is called - creative blogger - sunshine... who cares??? You have to tell us 7 things about yourself, then choose another 7 people, if you want too. No problem if you don't. It's taken me a year to write something! Thank you for showing us all your lovely vintage stuff - I really don't know where you find it all!
