Ingrid Calame Trace
Published to accompany a solo exhibition of Ingrid Calame’s work during the Edinburgh Art Festival 2011. 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 paint.
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. Writers: Fiona Bradley, Director of The Fruitmarket Gallery, Brian Dillon, writer and UK editor of Cabine magazine and Michael Newman, writer and lecturer at the Art Institute of Chicago and Goldsmiths College, London.
