Durham Press is pleased to announce the completion of STEP UP, the latest edition print by James Nares. STEP UP measures 58 x 46 inches and is printed with over ten different screens and inks. STEP UP is printed on Saunders Waterford paper and is an edition of 44.
Nares’s work focuses on movement, rhythm and repetition. His most iconic works are usually made as a single brushstroke, a visual recording of gesture and the passage of time across the canvas. Using brushes of his own design, he repeatedly creates and erases his strokes, over and over again, until he feels he has made a mark that represents a precise balance between intent and improvisation.
Each screen is printed with a different shade of ink in a slightly different profile, which gradually builds the image into a rich and highly textured finished print.
James Nares was born in London in 1953 and currently lives and works in New York. His work is included in numerous public and private collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of Art, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
Paul Kasmin Gallery is currently featuring an exhibition of new paintings entitled “Road Paint”. The exhibition runs through June 22nd.
