Kelly Re-Drawings 

In 1999, Ingram assisted in the installation of an exhibition of early drawings by Ellsworth Kelly at the High Museum of Art. His close proximity to the work allowed him to study the hand of a master for whom he had already developed an affinity. Ingram pulled pages of his favorite compositions from the exhibition catalog and began to copy them. Titled the "Kelly Re-Drawings" after their inspiration, the drawings emulate Kelly’s shapes and lines but are made with Ingram's preferred materials such as paint, graphite, white out, nail polish and spray paint. This seminal series laid the groundwork for a major shift in Ingram's work.
