At the Waterfront

6 June to 19 July 2015

Bringing together three dedicated and gifted artists, this exhibition celebrates strong lines and clarity of execution coupled with the perfectly simplified gesture, stroke or detail, with which all three distinguish their work.  Each allows subtleties in their work to speak out with the use of gentle colours, curves and textures to create powerfully attractive and desirable pieces.


The exhibition includes sixty fabulous paintings by Julian Bailey including oils and drawings with pastel and gouache. View Julian Bailey’s paintings here.

A fully illustrated 40pp catalogue with a foreword by Vivienne Light is available at £10 plus £2 p&p within the UK or to download free here:  Julian Bailey for web.

‘Whole, true to themselves, emotionally rich and seemingly spontaneous…

‘Bailey’s paintings belong to a world of which he is himself very much a part. His art has the power to strike a rich chord; the ability to evoke the full choreography of life in all its timbre and cadence, light and joy.

‘This is a deeply engaged and deeply engaging painter who has achieved what he set out achieve, namely a truly viable language in paint.’

Extracts from Vivienne Light FRSA’s foreword to the catalogue for this exhibition.
