Propagazione, 2009 - Giuseppe Penone
Since 1989, the Louvre Museum and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux have commissioned contemporary artists to produce engraved boards for the Chalcography, which guarantees the exclusivity of the draw, without limiting the number of events.
The fingerprint placed at the center of the print, Penone's thumb is the anchor point where the lines in circumference begin. Like a spiral, the lines begin at the heart of the finger and develop all around. Like tree rings calculating the age of trees, they tend to question time and identity. Other more accentuated lines converge at this point and accentuate the vortex movement. This test is part of the logic of all his work focused on the relationship to nature.
"The work is projected in the future, it is linked to the growth of the tree, to its existence.The work is in the making: to own the work you have to live next to the tree that is The mutation, the process of growth of the tree constitute the experience of the work of art. " 1969

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