Ingrid Calame has developed a body of work inspired by stains and graffiti found on urban streets and sidewalks, which she captures through tracings and then transposes into richly layered drawings and paintings. In 2006, she visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where she made tracings of the skid marks, tire tracks, and other marks left by racing cars, using such sources to create a new body of work. The use of bright colors and layered outlines create a drawing with an allover composition similar to those created by Abstract Expressionist painters. By layering these dynamic forms traced on Mylar, Calame abstractly captures the mass spectacle of speed and excitement for which the race is famed.
