Brave New World
Recent Works by Alain Pino
“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give
an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” George Orwell “Men have become the tools of their tools.” Henry David Thoreau
Alain Pino’s recent works address the complexities of modern life as he straddles the classicism of his early schooling with the challenges of contemporary life. As an observer and artist, his practice is grounded in technical artistic proficiency, coupled with a deep interest in technology and its role in our future. He addresses timely issues such as the financial markets, cryptocurrency, sonic attacks, AI, and the military conglomerate, while questioning our forefather’s role in our current state of a airs. Although the subjects sound loaded, they do not feel so under Alain’s gaze as there is a lightness and sense of humor that comes through due to his facile handling of the brush. His command of his artistic language and understanding of the world we live in have created a compelling and highly relatable body of work.
