Scottish artist Callum Innes, is a rigorously abstract painter who experiments and explores the boundary between control and chaos on the canvas and the tension between depth and surface. He works in series and plays with the adding and subtracting, the making and the unmaking of marks through building up layers of pigments and their subsequent reduction through Turpentine washes.
Innes has exhibited internationally and his work is held in public collections worldwide including the Guggenheim, New York; National Gallery of Australia; TATE, London, and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. A major exhibition of Callum Innes’ work over the past 15 years, was shown at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh in 2006 and toured Modern Art Oxford, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
