Artist Statement

Julie Umerle 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.

The 'Transoxide' series (2015) layers shellac ink and aquacryl paint on stretched paper. The 'Puja' and 'Shadow' series (2014 and 2013) layer shellac ink over a divided field of acrylic, defining the essential relationship between figure and ground.

In these three series of works the loops of black ink in the foreground, made from drips and splatters of ink, can be read as freeform calligraphy.
