Ingrid Calame’s works are boldly-colored, multi-layered abstractions, which bring to mind imaginary maps, ghostly human forms, stains, and graffiti. Her work begins with tracings or rubbings from a multitude of sources, which are then combined and retraced before being transformed into drawings, paintings or even pure pigment installations.
Ingrid Calame is an American based artist who now resides in Los Angeles, CA. Calame was born in 1965 in the Bronx, New York and grew up in Westchester County. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the State University of New York at Purchase (Purchase College) and received a Master of Fine Arts in art and film from the California Institute of the Arts. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others.
