Julie Umerle

Artist

An award-winning painter with work in public and private collections worldwide, Julie Umerle was born in the USA and currently lives and works in London. She studied fine art at Falmouth University and completed her MFA at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City.  She works in series that are often open-ended, exploring similarity, repetition and difference within each group. Her painting practice is an investigation of materials and the perception of image. Her work explores the materiality of paint and the processes of abstract painting. Recent exhibitions include 'Contemporary British Watercolours', Maidstone Museum, Kent (2015); 'Present Tense', Swindon Art Gallery, Wiltshire (2015); 'Contemporary British Painting', Huddersfield Art Gallery, Yorkshire (2014) read full statement
