Julie Umerle


Julie Umerle's paintings exist at the meeting point of decision and accident, as indeed do our lives. Colours are chosen to oppose and confound, while the exact materiality, the weight of the paint interferes, patterning its own trajectory. The chromatic dis/harmony in paint, and the friction between these rivulets of colour summons up a quite different (ir)-reality, matching the glimpses of infinity behind the slashes in Fontana's monochromes; as the action of gravity, magnetising the flows of paint, closes or widens the gap between these streams of time and the space that opens whenever they part or fail to meet.
