Two chimneys like church steeples tower over a brick wall with blank windows partially masking the view of an industrial plant. In this stark landscape, donated to the Hospice by the artist, total immobility and complete silence reign. With this work Tonelli gives the viewer a particularly eloquent example of his artistic style in which all the minute details of his work can be immediately recognised and appreciated: the precision of his drawing skills, the “classical” balance, and the total absence of human life and the spare essential nature of the composition.
