Art: James Nares

image

James Nares is a well known artist who paints large canvases with giant paint laden brushes while suspended from a rigging system. The paintings have a lush, sensual quality to them. The colors and textures that are created through the movement of the brushes is just incredible.

I’m a huge fan of these dark canvases with the lighter colored brushstrokes on them. The blue pieces above remind of the sea; they are full of a dark, mysterious energy.
