Waiting in Vain 1
Watercolor and ink on paper
9 x 12 inches
Waiting in Vain 1 is Chino Carlo’s response to the general cultural toxicity and political fatigue that unfolded during the lockdown. The 9 x 12-inch watercolor and ink on paper piece depicts a bright image of a man in the usual style Chino renders his subjects - disappointment evident in its face and body placement.
Your main takeaway in this crisis? “The current environment we have does not make people feel good about themselves and about the future. One has to be strong enough to say that if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it.”
