Nicola Parente’s exhibition at the Manuel Felguerez Abstract Art Museum in Zacatecas Mexico, will run December 9, 2011 through March 9, 2012. This exhibition titled “Al Borde del Despertar” (“Edge of Awakening”) will feature 30 large scale abstract paintings.
According to Parente, “Art is a venture into worlds that are often only discovered in the attempt to represent them to yourself and others.” He prefers to paint in series, “exploring multiple ways of saying not the same thing, but similar things, related things—things that are in process and could go in a multiplicity of directions. The possibility of awakening is also the possibility of remaining unawakened. Our lives are more circuitous than linear, living in more than one environment, a step forward, a step back, moving through a land with no clear boundaries whose silence we interrupt with both our words as well as our marks of paint, discovering and inventing our futures.”
