Biography

b. 1962, Edinburgh (SCO)

Download CV

Callum Innes works with painting and watercolour in an expressive yet highly precise manner. Vivid colors feed off of the artist’s every-day experiences, impinging on his consciousness and directly translating onto the canvas. The artist paints a seemingly meticulous arrangement, only to remove the paint again with turpentine, decisively leaving behind subtle indications of the painting’s process. A slender, feathered edge on one side of the canvas reveals a color that has been painted over and out again. In his watercolours, the lightness of one pigment allows for a gently layered technique, emphasizing a distinctive complementary approach to his painting.
