INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED DORSET ARTIST TO RETURN TO DUKE’S

 

Following on from a hugely successful solo exhibition in 2017, Dorset based artist Julian Bailey is returning to Dorchester auction house Duke’s with a new selling exhibition ‘Recent Works in Oil and Gouache’, which will run in Duke’s Gallery from Monday 3rd December 2018 for two weeks .

 

Julian Bailey lives with his family near Dorchester. Born in 1963, he had his first successful exhibition at Malvern Public Library when he was still at school.  He studied art at the Ruskin School while attending New College, Oxford and then went on to the Royal Academy Schools where he was awarded the Turner Gold Medal and later the Landseer Scholarship.

He had his first one-man show in London in 1991 and has exhibited regularly since, joining Browse & Darby in Cork Street in 1999 as their youngest artist. He and his family moved to Dorset in 1998 when Julian began to paint landscapes, particularly the Dorset coast. In 2011 he was elected to join the New English Art Club and awarded the David Messum Prize. He also won the Manya Igel prize that year. His work is in numerous collections including HRH The Prince of Wales, New College Oxford, Pembroke College Oxford, Reed Executive, Old Mutual Assurance, Daiwa Bank, SG Warburg and more.

From beginning to finish, his work is a process; refined, destroyed and re-created until a solution is defined, resulting most recently in observational displays of groups of people meeting one another, mainly of those in bar and café society. Current and contemporary, Julian’s work portrays the figure in a youthful way, representing their associations through exaggerated form. From his depictions of people to his Loggia and courtyard compositions, Julian demonstrates a fine example of the link between form, colour and space in paint. 

Julian Bailey’s works will be on view at Duke’s Gallery from Monday 3rd December 2018 to Friday 14th December. For further information please contact Duke’s on 01305 265080
