Frith Street gallery exhibition
Innes’s colourful paintings from his Exposed series are made by ‘un-painting’ as well as painting; a process he has made his own over the past 20 years. Layers of oil paint are applied onto the canvas and gently dissolved away with turpentine, leaving traces of luminous pigment. Central to this process is a sense of fragility and tension – a fine line held between control and chaos.
In addition to the Exposed series, works from Innes’s Untitled and Resonance series are also on view at Frith Street Gallery, London, which illustrate the artist’s tendency to work alternately on a number of different paintings at once.
