Julian Bailey- Hold that Pose
17th July – 12th September 2021
Julian prints his black and white drypoint etchings on a hand press and colours some of them by hand in gouache.
Julian has brought out a new book illustrating his prints to coincide with the exhibition called Hold the Pose. Having made his name over the last thirty years or so painting the Dorset coast in thickly textured clear bright oil paint with expressive brushstrokes, he has recently been figure drawing from a model in the studio and engraving the metal etching plates with lines that he prints in inky black with no room for mistakes. His great sense of colour shows in the simple gouache washes he hand-paints onto some of the prints.
Julian is showing in Sladers Yard’s first Summer Prints and Drawings Show bringing together seven acclaimed artists who all take time out from painting to make fully resolved ambitious prints and drawings. The exhibition includes prints by Sally McLaren, Martyn Brewster and Michael Fairclough and drawings by Alex Lowery, Vanessa Gardiner and Janette Kerr.
