Welcome to my online Journal where i hope to share my thoughts, feeling, inspirations, processes, problem solving, and completed works as well as works in progress.
Giuseppe Penone (born 3 April 1947, Garessio, Italy) is an Italian artist and sculptor, known for his large-scale sculptures of trees that are interested in the link between man and the natural world. His early work is often associated with the Arte povera movement. In 2014, Penone was awarded the prestigious Praemium Imperiale award. He currently lives and works in Turin, Italy.
I have always been inspired by this mans work and the reasoning behind his pieces. We share the same awe in nature and the same intrigue in how humans and nature coexist. My eye was particually caught by the piece shown bottom left, the way the large canvas was hung, gets me thinking of way to display my trip tic with the projection.
