Road Paint Print 8

About

2016, intaglio from polyurethane mold, 46 x 22 inches (116.8 x 55.9 cm), edition of 12 For his Road Paint series, Nares brought a road striping machine into his studio. These tools are typically used to create solid dividing lines, dashes, and other traffic indicators on pavement. The raised lines were used to make a casting into a polyurethane mold—the ink could then be hand applied into the crevasses of the mold and printed with an intaglio technique over a black screenprinted background. Each work in the series focuses on a solitary line and emphasizes subtle variations within seemingly repetitive and automatic imagery. This focus on individual marks recalls the artists signature works with isolated brushstroke images on monochromatic backgrounds. The prints also expand on many of his other recent investigations into momentum and suspended action. Like his “high speed drawings,” for which the artist drew on paper while it spun on a motorized, lathe-like machine, or his film Street, which was created with a high-speed camera and presented in ultra slow motion, Nares’s Road Paint Prints explore the perception of movement and velocity. The series takes the anonymous lines that one passes by mindlessly on the highway and instead renders them personal through deceleration.
