Callum Innes donates prints for fundraising campaign

                                                                                                                                                                                                                   CMW2 by Callum Innes


Callum Innes studied at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen and at Edinburgh College of Art. He was shortlisted for the Turner and Jerwood Prizes in 1995 and in 1998 he won the prestigious NatWest Prize for Painting. In 2002 he was awarded the Jerwood Prize for Painting. As one of the most significant abstract painters of his generation, he has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and his work is held in public collections worldwide including the Guggenheim New York, the National Gallery of Austria, Tate London and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Callum uses stone lithography to allow the most immediacy and fluidity in his image making and to produce prints in layers of colour. He paints directly on the stone with ink wash layers and then paints with acid-gum etches to lighten or remove areas.

Using watercolour paintings as a starting point, the final prints were realised through a period of trial proofing, reworking and playful overprinting to arrive at the outcomes that were then printed as limited editions of 20 prints. As one of our Artist Patrons, Callum Innes has donated these two new prints to our fundraising campaign for Castle Mill Works and they are available now to buy on our website.
