"Callum Innes: from memory"
2007-07-28 until 2007-09-23
Kettle's Yard Gallery, University of Cambridge
Cambridge, , UK United Kingdom

Callum Innes: from memory brings together a selection of key paintings and works on paper, and offers a rare opportunity to trace the development of the artistís work over the past fifteen years. This showing includes works previously not exhibited. Working in series, Innes has crafted a distinctive visual language through a paring-down of the essential elements of painting, with the repeated application and removal of paint from the canvas. This exhibition includes examples of several key series of works: Identified Forms, Isolated Forms, Repetitions, Monologues, Resonances and paintings made with shellac.

Rhythmic and meditative, Innesís paintings nevertheless bear traces of the controlled chaos of their production. The Monologues are made by brushing turpentine into a simply-painted ground and dissolving the paint into an expressive torrent, often evoking forces of nature. In the shellac paintings, he draws on the oppositional qualities of shellac and paint to make luminously associative imagery.

Innes came to national and international prominence in the early 1990s, and the earliest works in this exhibition date from that time. A major part of the exhibition is devoted to the ongoing series of Exposed Paintings, in which the canvas is divided geometrically between fields of dense and dissolved paint, and unpainted ground. The exhibition reveals how this series has diversified over time. In a commanding new sequence of Exposed Paintings, Innes exploits the possibilities offered by dissolving violet into and against black in a range of differently proportioned horizontal bands.

A beautifully illustrated publication accompanies the exhibition, featuring essays by Fiona Bradley, Eric de Chassey, Michael Auping and Richard Cork, and an interview with Callum Innes by Paul Bonaventura. Published by Hatje Cantz and The Fruitmarket Gallery. Special exhibition price £25.00.

Callum Innes: From Memory is organised by The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh.
