James Nares

Since his 1974 arrival in New York, James Nares has been a central member of the vibrant downtown art and music scene.

Once described by Glenn O’Brien as “the last of the Action Painters,” Nares attempts to capture his work’s own creation.  Produced with handmade brushes, his monumental strokes are almost three-dimensional in the degree of detail and depth they reveal. In 2008, the artist rediscovered numerous of his experimental Super 8 films from the 1970s. Now Nares is renowned as both a filmmaker and a painter singularly concerned with physicality and ways to illustrate the unfolding of time.
Produced in close collaboration with the artist, this definitive monograph surveys the entirety of Nares’s career, including many unpublished works. With essays and commentary by critics including Amy Taubin, Ed Halter, and Glenn O’Brien, the book also includes an illuminating and personal conversation between the artist and Christopher Wool.
