"Rush Light", 1989 Framed Pastel On Paper by Jim Waid, Companion Available

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


In "Rush Light," 1989, artist Jim Waid through his mastery of pastel on paper, reflects a microcosmic view of nature that would otherwise be purely abstract without the sporadic depiction of suggestive fauna. Organic shapes are richly layered with shades of celadon, turquoise, blue, red, fascia, peach and pale pink with accents of black to form a dynamic and atmospheric deconstruction of the physical world. "Light Rush" is framed in a whitewashed wood frame with a linen matt shown in the photographs below. Signed lower right front, Riva Yares Gallery label on verso. There is a companion piece, "Spindle," of the same dimensions available for purchase as shown in image 3.

Born in Oklahoma in 1942, Jim Waid has been exhibiting both his large scale paintings and works on paper in galleries for over 50 years. The Tucson Arizona resident is one of its most celebrated artists, having received a Governor's Award in 2013. He exhibits in major galleries in Phoenix, Chicago and Denver with solo shows too numerous to list. His works reside in the collections of several prominent museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Denver Art Museum, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Fine Art in Sant Fe just to name a few. In the fall of 2016, Last Chair Media published a book spanning Jim Waid's stellar career.
