New publication to accompany solo exhibition of Ingrid Calame’s work at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh.

Calame, an artist based in Los Angeles, makes intricate, abstract paintings and drawings with a specific relationship to the world. Her work begins with marks, stains and cracks on the ground which Calame traces, then combines layers and retraces, transforming them into drawings in coloured penicl or pure pigment and paintings in enamel or oil pain.

This publication presents Calame’s work from 1994 to 2011. Extensively illustrated with three new essays and an interview with the artist, it charts the development of Calame’s singular visual language.

Featured in the exhibition and catalog is the work Hoo-koo-koo-koo, 2003, from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.
