Giusepe Penone

I wrote my dissertation partly on Penone, it was great to go and see his work in such an intimate, space part of the Gagosian gallery.

Intersecting Gaze / Sguardo Incrociato

'Penone’s artful expressions entail a serene and meditative return to an 
innate state of being.'

His work is beautiful, the re-creation of the tree's structure in bronze is magical. 
The  structure emits fragility but the material is grounding. 

'The stretching of a branch through space in search of light has the same structure as a glance.'
—Giuseppe Penone
