This is Julie Paterson’s first solo exhibition of paintings which explores the simple forms of bottles, beakers and bowls. Dependable and humble, they are the stuff of our daily lives.

‘I have been drawing, painting and designing things for over 20 years and I find that the more time I spend in the studio, the more fluid my creative flow and the richer my design practice.

A simple, mindful habit of drawing and painting, taking note of the small things, the every day detail, quietly and daily is a ritual I aspire to. It makes me feel good and balanced, like yoga of the head.’

The materials are masonite and plywood off cuts, house paint sample pots from the local hardware shop and gouache from the days when Julie used to design textiles for on paper for clothfabric.
