Callum Innes – Paintings
This is a solo exhibition of new work by artist Callum Innes. The exhibition presents new paintings on aluminium, oil painting on linen and pastel works on paper.Innes’ first solo exhibition in Dublin since 2012.
“As the art world goes through periodic formal and conceptual trends, Callum Innes defiantly pursues the evocative potential of one flat colour upon one flat canvas, or a barely curved sheet of aluminium. While the large-scale asymmetrical panels provide an almost architectural ground for Innes’s monochrome abstractions, a complementary set of works on handmade paper use dry pigment pastels to achieve a silky aura of exquisite fragility.”
– Robert Clark (The Guardian)
