May 2013: abstract art at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester
Whitworth Gallery - part of Manchester University
Went to an exhibition of the work of Callum Innes at the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester recently. I admire his work. It is a very controlled form of abstraction: paint is applied and removed through a precise pre-planned process. The outcome is unadorned and, perhaps, austere, but very bold, engaging and thought-provoking.
