"Spindle," 1991 Framed 30" Pastel on Paper by Jim Waid, Companion Available

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


In "Spindle, 1991" artist Jim Waid through his mastery of pastel on paper, reflects a microcosmic view of nature that would otherwise be purely abstracted without the sporadic inclusion of suggestive fauna. Organic shapes are richly layered with sumptuous shades of red, berry, lavender, pink, gold and blue to form a deconstructed view of the physical world that is simultaneously dynamic and harmonious. "Spindle" is framed in a whitewashed wood frame with a linen matte shown in the below photographs. Signed lower right, Riva Yares Gallery label on verso. There is a companion piece "Rush Light" available with the same measurements shown in the last photograph.

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