Edge of Awakening – Paintings by artist Nicola Parente

“Only that day dawns to which we are awake.”
These words by Henry David Thoreau inspire Nicola Parente’s new body of work Edge of Awakening. The dynamic series of expressive abstract paintings explores neither awakening nor its opposite, but the uncertain worlds between the two where each person must choose among possibilities. Those choices, those points of decision, visited and re-visited, both discover and invent the nature of our lives. Parente’s exhibition runs September 10 through October 9, 2010 at Gremillion &Co Fine Art, Houston.  For more information see Portfolio>Edge of Awakening
