Callum Innes

Callum Innes, an artist living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland, is known for his meditative process of applying and removing paint until he achieves the perfect balance of give-and-take in his monochrome works. Short-listed for the 1995 Turner Prize and similarly recognized throughout his career, Innes’s paintings are pure in their approach while complex in their effect. The Modern’s collection includes Exposed Painting: Mars Black, 2002, part of a series for which Innes has become known. For Tuesday Evenings Innes presents his entire body of serene and enigmatic paintings.
