Nicola Parente exhibiting in a group show with Wade Wilson Art Santa Fe (409 Canyon Rd). Located on the historic lower Canyon Road arts district, Wade Wilson Art Santa Fe will feature a full season of exhibitions. Wade Wilson exhibits a roster of 27 extraordinary contemporary artists whose work explores the use of light, color, and abstraction. On exhibit through July 30, 2012.
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.”

Launching the season at Serenade Art House in Addis Ababa Ethiopia, American-Italian artist Nicola Parente premiers “In the Light,” a photographic exhibition.
“In the Light” came to life after a relentless four-year journey. Parente explored the concept of hidden light, light that is too fast for the human eye to capture. Once Parente disentangled the process of breaking down light a whole world opened to him. The result is a breathtaking collection of work that celebrates the infinite colours of light with none of the photographs having been manipulated by Photoshop. With “In the Light” the viewer is welcomed to enter the light.
“In the Light” Exhibition Runs October 18 – November 27, 2011
