Giuseppe Penone

In an oeuvre spanning almost fifty years, Giuseppe Penone has explored the subtle levels of interplay between man, nature, and art. His work represents a poetic expansion of arte povera’s radical break with conventional media, emphasizing the involuntary processes of respiration, growth, and aging that are common to both human beings and trees with which he is so deeply involved. His works can be found in many major museum collections around the world.
