Those Who Wait

The theme of waiting deserves a few posts. I originally thought I could make one, or even two, but it’s too rich of a topic. What is Fontana waiting for? His slashes are titled “Attesa,” which I would translate as “the wait.” Ironically, whatever development his work promises is already completed, even before the picture is painted. There is nothing to wait for. This is one topic of my book.
