“Byzantine Blue, Delft Blue, Paris Blue” is an ambitious exhibition, reflective of Innes’s distinctive, signature style - controlled, yet dramatic. His works explore the tension between control and the potential for chance and chaos in the creative process.
Innes shot to artistic fame with exhibitions at the Institute for Contemporary Art in London and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. His reputation as one of the most influential abstract painters of his generation has awarded him with two prestigious awards for his mantlepiece, the Jerwood Painting Prize in 2002 and the Natwest Prize for Painting in 1998.
Innes was there for the inaugural exhibition of the Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, in 1998, so it seems fitting that he carry the flame for their 20 year anniversary. To celebrate two decades of showcasing world-class artistic talent and flair, Innes presents a series of abstract paintings which explore the possibilities of the colour blue.
