Noteworthy: Road Paint by James Nares

James Nares, Untitled (Road Paint Series), 2013

Durham Press would like to congratulate James Nares on his upcoming exhibition, ROAD PAINT, which will be on view at Paul Kasmin Gallery from May 8th through June 15th.

The new series of paintings was created with the use of a mechanical road striper, a new technique Nares is using to spread a viscous white paint across the black ground of his canvases. The process also distributes tiny glass beads into the paint, which creates an iridescent effect. This series of work continues to explore Nares’ interest in form, motion, rhythm and time.

Street, the 2011 film, can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum until May 27th.
