Ingleby Gallery's booth at Art Basel Hong Kong 2017 will focus on the work of the UK based artists Callum Innes, James Hugonin and Charles Avery.
Callum Innes is one of the leading abstract artists of our time. He was shortlisted for the Turner prize in 1995 and is famed for his techniques of “un-painting”; applying paint in layers and then dissolving it away with
turpentine. Following the artist's major survey exhibition at the de Pont Museum, Netherlands, Ingleby will exhibit a pair of new works from the Exposed Painting series.
For the past 28 years Hugonin has made just one large painting a year, but in the past 18 months he has embarked on a new series of smaller works. This Elliptical Variant series will be shown here in their entirety. It is twelve years since Charles Avery embarked upon his lifelong commitment to a single project, The Islanders; a painstakingly drawn description of a fictional world that functions in parallel to our own universe, in drawing,
painting, sculpture and text. Elements of the project have recently been exhibited as part of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale and Ingleby will exhibit new drawings from this latest chapter.
