Run from the Shadows
Venue:Yore Mill Craft Shop and Gallery, Yore Mill, Church Bank, Leyburn DL8 3SR United Kingdom
“Run from the Shadows” is the first exhibition by Julie Edwardson since her move to the Dales last Spring to open Yore Mill Gallery with her partner Steve, which fulfils a lifelong ambition.
Julie had been an art teacher in the North East of England since ‘87 and since leaving teaching has been a member of The Bank Art Group in North Shields having two exhibitions with the group in 2019 and 2020.
Julie is drawn to details in the landscape working mainly with acrylic paint and mixed media collage taking inspiration from nature and the effects of man on the landscape.
Since moving to the Dales, Julie has been intrigued by the play of light through the trees particularly falling onto man made forms. She responds to the sights and sounds of the environment and expresses the mood of the local area in gesture and colour.
Julie hopes to evoke the sounds of the dales through these abstracted images such as the play of water over stones and the breeze through the trees. She is attracted to the points where nature and humans collide, textures and contrasts.
Julie uses mixed media collage and acrylic paint to achieve a textured layered images through transparent and opaque media achieving depth and subtlety in tone and colour.
Hopefully you will be able to visit the Gallery here at Aysgarth Falls to enjoy these exciting new works by Julie
