CALLUM INNES makes work in a number of different ways, all of which are gradually evolving. The shifts that appear from one series to the next are rarely dramatic, but each new painting builds on those that have gone before in a subtle but constant progression. Over the past few years it is the works described as Exposed Paintings that have become best known, but there are other types of Innes painting that share the central contradiction of all his work: namely that something so apparently simple can have such a complex effect on the mind and eye. Like the Exposed Paintings, which are made by layering different pigments onto the canvas and then removing the paint with washes of turpentine, works such as Agitated Verticals, Resonance and Monologue paintings are made by un-painting as well as painting, so that the potential for uncertainty is ever present. Our third exhibition of Innes' work at the Ingleby gallery looks at a small but diverse group of paintings that have emerged from his studio in Edinburgh in the Summer and Autumn of 2004.
