James Nares Title (Oil on Linen by James Nares on CrispMe)

James Nares, represented by the Paul Kasmin Gallery, creates these beautiful large scale oil paintings on a linen canvas. Although his works look simple and repetitive at first, Nares frequently produces these artworks with a single brush stroke, recording a gestural passage of time and motion across the canvas. On top of this, it is said that Nares uses “brushes of his own design, he repeatedly creates and erases his strokes, over and over again, until he feels he has made one that represents a precision of balance between intent and improvisation.” And that, is the definition of mastery.
