Recent Works by Alain Pino 2019

Alain Pino’s new works continue his exploration on the intersection between identity and industrial design. In a hyper-capitalistic age, in which social media frenzy and the commoditization of privacy turn every person into a brand and every action into a public statement, his paintings capture the multi-layered yet silent dynamism of the making of an image. They feature interiors like utopian, bucolic millscapes. His focus on the tools rather than the result stresses his understanding of art as knowledge, deeply rooted in the modern ethos of art as life. The tightly-synchronized and shiny chromed designs shaping recognizable cultural icons underscore humans’ ambiguity towards their most precious creation - our selves.
