Coach – James Nares

James Nares did not immediately rocket to the top of the New York painting scene.  The Englishman turned New Yorker had to go through many phases to get there.  He practically had to shoot himself in the foot.  He was a No Wave musician, a filmmaker and performer, and a leading member of the living-dangerously clique of the '70s and '80s.  But no matter what he was going through, he always worked at his art with elegance and grace, and he was always greatly admired (and collected) by fellow artists, many of them more successful than himself.  Finally, over the last decade, the handsome, towering, snooker-playing, self-effacing painter has finally begun to achieve the recognition he deserves.  His paintings can be found in many great collections and at the Paul Kasmin Gallery.
