.....Another artist whose work I greatly admire: Callum Innes (born 1962, Scotland).

Process is an integral part of Innes' work, as he explores the properties of paint. Innes employs a mostly monochromatic color scheme, and using an additive and subtractive method, he "unpaints" and repaints the canvas, creating luminous, meditative large-scale images.
