Synopsis

The Unbroken Piece is a collection of poems and original paintings by its author Antoinette (Toni) Drago and is presented in full color. With a profound ability to communicate through art subjectively and spiritually, Drago’s wide-ranging interests in subjects as esoteric as the Renaissance and Theoretical Physics bloom in her paintings and poetic tributes to the power of science, the essential nature of spirit, humanity and philosophy. Her work has been exhibited on both coasts and a 2009 solo art exhibit in Los Angeles featuring some of the visual material presented in this book displays her sense of the randomness and occasional cacophony of life amid the deeper abiding calm of spiritual waters. This sense of amalgamation, fluidity, continuity, and even an ethereal component, are often present ~ either subtly or explosively ~ in both her writing and painting. Her understanding of artistic freedom is attenuated in her thematic usage of flow and flight as metaphors for her non-conformist free spirit and hope and a future for humanity ~ through the further interlaminations of science, soul, and time.
