'Cosmos or Chaos'

There's an exhibition of my paintings coming  up in the new year in London at studio1.1, a gallery in Shoreditch, entitled 'Cosmos or Chaos'. This will be my first solo exhibition since 2008, and it is supported by Arts Council England, the national development agency for the arts, through its Grants for the arts programme for individuals and organisations. I am really thrilled to have this opportunity to make my work more accessible, and to bring it to the attention of a wider audience. Hope you will come by to say hello and take a look at my new paintings.

Private view: Thursday 7th January, 6-9pm
Exhibition runs from 8 - 24 January 2010

Cosmos or Chaos:  "As the title immediately suggests, Julie Umerle’s paintings exist at the meeting point of decision and accident, as indeed do our lives.

In this series of works, created specifically for the exhibition, gravity and design collude and collide in a synthesis which calls up a most unexpected counterpart. Colours are chosen to oppose and confound, while the exact materiality, the weight of the paint interferes, patterning its own trajectory."

Hope to see some of the works in this exhibition elsewhere, though can't make the actual gallery dates. The concept is intriguing!
