Nostalgic mood ? ‘Tis the season to celebrate love, family and another year… Exploring scenes, motifs and emotions, Isabella Innis presents ‘Notes on Nostalgia.’ Playful, colorful lyrical color gradients juxtapose with geometric forms and chaotic charcoal lines surrounding commonplace objects — a banana, a game of checker board, a hopscotch path, a houseplant — connecting the universal to the personal through constellations of color, line, and shape.
The collection was just presented at FF-1051 Gallery in Los Angeles, curated by Gallery Founder, Holly Purcell. Here’s a look at some of Isabella’s art.
ABOUT ISABELLA INNIS:
Isabella Innis was born in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1990. She graduated from Westmont College (Santa Barbara, California) in 2012 with a degree in Fine Arts, after spending parts of her childhood in Oxford, U.K. and Colorado. Innis currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She is best known for her abstract paintings; in these, Innis layers poured paint. A technique that allows calculation and chance to operate simultaneously. Palette knife marks and exposed background sketches lend to the expressive energy of her works, which convey an unspoken quality of transformation. Recently, Innis collaborated with Portia De Rossi’s art curation company General Public and Restoration Hardwareon a series of 3D printed paintings of her work. Innis’ paintings have been acquired by collections across the United States and the U.K. Her last solo exhibition, Red Valley, showed at Hazard Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa (2018).
