Giuseppe Penone - Propagazione, 2009

New product

The fingerprint attached to the centre of the proof, the thumbprint of Penone's thumb, is the anchor point where the circumference lines begin. Like a spiral, the lines begin in the middle of the finger and develop around it. Like rings of wood calculating the age of trees, these tend to question time and identity. Other more accentuated lines converge at this point and accentuate the vortex movement. This test is in keeping with the logic of all his work centred on the relationship with nature and the vegetable world.

"The work is projected into the future, it is linked to the growth of the tree, to its existence. The work is in the making: to possess the work, one must live next to the tree that is the author. The mutation, the growth process of the tree is the experience of the work of art." 1969
Guiseppe Penone,"Respirer l' ombre", Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Ecrits d' artistes, 2004

"The imprint is something that everyone places around you, and that you spend part of your life trying to erase.... It is an animal image, an image of matter, but it is also a completely cultural image." Guiseppe Penone,"Developing under your skin", 1970
