Nola Parker: 20 Landscapes

Nola Parker: 20 Landscapes . November 3-24, 2018

Read the review in aether magazine here.

Parker is a self taught artist that lives and works in Vermont. She was born there and spent a lot of time outside. To her, the outdoors was always beautiful and a bit dangerous: a refuge but also a place of mystery. It’s funny to her that we humans build our little roads and homes in this growing vastness as if we own the place. Parker like to paint those places where we have made ourselves known amid the wilderness. What drives her is to find an exciting way to tell about a place; to explore and honor this weird world. 

Her current body of work depicts scenes from Texas, Vermont, Colorado, and Massachusetts; landscapes both stumbled upon and sought out from the past two years.
