“Then and now, Penone speaks to our intrinsic being of and belonging to nature, and the lack of any real boundary or difference between us and it. In this digital age, his work grounds and elevates us, opening our eyes in the present to the silent but vital remnants of an animistic past.”  ~ Adele Tutter
