      Biography

      An award-winning international artist 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, Cornwall and Parsons The New School for Design in New York City. Umerle works in series that are consistently open-ended, exploring similarity, repetition and difference within each group. Her practice is an investigation of materials and the perception of  the image, exploring the materiality of paint and the processes of abstract painting. Recent exhibitions include 'Creekside Open selected by Alison Wilding', APT Gallery (2017), 'Rewind', Art Bermondsey Project Space (2016); Scope Art Show, Miami, Florida (2016); 'Contemporary British Watercolours', Maidstone Museum, Kent  (2015); 'Present Tense', Swindon Art Gallery, Wiltshire (2015); 'Contemporary British Painting', Huddersfield Art Gallery, Yorkshire (2014)
