Artist of the moment….James Nares

James Nares is a fantastic British painter born in London, England in the year 1953. When you think of his work “time capule” should jump into your head. Nares tries to capture the EXACT moment an object was created.  Nares uses a variety of unique materials such as thermoplastic on linen or iridescent pigment and wax on linen.  Nares most renown works show the trail of a paintbrush dipped in one tone and drug across the canvas.

In this clip we visit a gallery show given in 2009.

For his artistic education Nares attended the Chelsea School of Art located in London, England. Nares also attended the School of Visual Arts located in New York City.

Currently lives and works out of New York City after moving here in 1974.

James Nares has also made some movies and was part of the New York underground film scene in the 1970s.

price range information: Works range from $5,000 to $60,000.  This was for original works, unable to find prints available.

In this lovely clip we visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and stroll down the streets of the big Apple. A wonderful installation work!
