About Julie Umerle:

Julie Umerle is an American-born abstract painter who lives and works in London and has exhibited in the UK and internationally. Umerle creates works that investigate the relationship between materials and the perception of the image. Her investigation focuses on the balance between precision and chance, exploring the materiality of paint and the processes of abstract painting.

She contributes regularly to Studio International, Photomonitor and The Mail on Sunday and has been widely published in a variety of other print and online art and photography journals and newspapers.

The event is free and open to the public but seating is limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

A catalogue will be available with an essay by Anna McNay and excerpts from Julie Umerle’s autobiography.

This exhibition was made possible thanks to a Grants for the Arts award from Arts Council England.
