None will Level on the Wine

Yes, I am in love with James Nares‘  brush stroke.   Unlike geometric paintings, which I am not a fan of,  this post-abstract expressionist work captures the energy and lyricism of his artistic process.  He uses a rig to suspend himself, mid-air, over his canvases allowing him the total freedom to express his magnificent signature stroke.

He was born in London in 1953 and moved to New York in 1974.  His work would look great anywhere, including a classical interior.  A wonderful blend of a beautiful timeless contemporary expression with the  elegance of classicism.

As seen in Luxe Interiors & Design by Jenny Peters and Rachel Mbiango of Peters & Mbiango Interiors.  His work has been exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, New York and Albright Knox Museum, Buffalo.  His work is available through Paul Kasmin Gallery.

He uses pearlescent hues on iridescent backgrounds.  Wonderful light.

  1. Yes I do love his brush stroke. Believe me I am not a fan of anything modern, but for those that are looking for a way to create a new twist for a classical space his brush stroke would be my suggestion.

  2. so calligraphic, lively and fresh. Thanks very much
