Revisiting the Art of James Nares
04 . 01 . 11
I wrote about artist James Nares
shortly after a began my blog which was almost three and a half years ago. Since then, his work has shown up in many more publications. I love seeing how great his flowing calligraphy brush stroke art looks in such a variety of interiors. What’s even more interesting is James Nares
suspends himself to paint them. I think I might have to see if he’s open to a studio visit! Bon Weekend!

“It’s a fine balance between design and the thing making itself happen. The stroke has to have complete precision to work. Sometimes I lose it on the exit. You can’t fudge it. It ruins the whole thing.” The resulting figures are almost always contained within the rectangle. “It’s less of a window if I keep it within the confines of the canvas, but there’s almost always a drip that’s an umbilical cord.” – James Nares
