HANDIMALS - Kosmos Unipv


Le mani dipinte di Guido Daniele

Kosmos presents the handimals exhibition in the renovated spaces on the first floor Handimals. Le mani dipinte di Guido Daniele. 42 works, including paintings and photographic prints, created by the artist who has dedicated himself to painting hands for over twenty years to recreate animal features with extreme realism and chromatic liveliness. The exhibition celebrates the beauty of nature and, at the same time, invites us to reflect on its fragility, each creation, which requires hours of talented and patient work, is then photographed and destroyed. The photographic image, therefore, remains the only testimony of the work, as an allusion to the vulnerability of life and the animal species portrayed. On display there will be astonishing eagles and elephants, horses and pandas, butterflies and dogs, all masterfully reproduced with brushes and colors on hands of all kinds. Before arriving at Kosmos, Guido Daniele’s works were exhibited in galleries, museums and cultural institutions all over the world. The artist wanted to dedicate the Pavia stage of the exhibition to Jane Goodall for her 90th birthday, recently celebrated.
