Julia Hamilton MA
Julia Hamilton BA, MA (City & Guilds London School of Art) lives and works in London and Deal. She was one of the group’s founding members at Terrace Studios in Hackney, and worked as Head of Printmaking at The Mary Ward Centre in London. She is currently enroled on the Turps Banana Correspondence Course and her current mentor is Geraldine Swayne. Past mentors were Colin Smith and Dan Coombs.
Her work is influenced and drawn from numerous sources from films, vintage magazines, women’s magazines and found photographs. Artists include Marlene Dumas, Chantal Joffe, Genieve Figgis, Paula Rego, Alex Katz, Goya, Max Beckmann alongside films such as Cabaret, The Third Man, Brief Encounter and The Big Sleep.
Dan Coombs has said about her work,‘She is working between two modes, the portrait and the narrative painting. What links the two is that the condition is predominantly fictional. The paintings act out a fantasy world in which character fulfills fictional attributes such as innocence and allure.’
Past shows include: Flowers Gallery, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Transition, APT Creekside, Columbia Threadneedle Prize, Sim Smith, Alicia David, The Discerning Eye, The Mall Galleries, Good Figures curated by Candida Stephens, Long and Ryle, The Lion and Lamb, Terrace, and One Woman show at The Arts Club, Dover St.

EXHIBITION EXTENDED THROUGHOUT APRIL
14 February – 26 April 2018
at 26 Store Street, Fitzrovia, London WC1E 7BT
The London Deal brings together a group of contemporary artists to create a unique show that compliments the space perfectly.”
– Myles Corley, Gallery Director, Linden Hall Studio.
“I am delighted to welcome Linden Hall Studio as the first professional art gallery to exhibit at The Building Centre. Contemporary art has always been a personal passion of mine and Linden Hall Studio has created its own special place in the art world in a very short time. Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury have always been synonymous with art and architecture and Linden Hall Studio is therefore an excellent addition to this creative area.”
– Colin Tweedy, Chief Executive, The Building Centre.
Established in 2014, the ethos of the gallery was always to bring the very best of contemporary British Art to the English coast. With over the 31 exhibitions, and a multitude of visitors ; the gallery is delighted and extremely proud to be able to continue achieving and expanding upon this original aim.
The gallery’s location is important to its charm. Just over an hour on the fast train from central London whilst at the same time, being a mere stones throw from the English Channel. One cannot pass through this little patch of England, it is a location, a destination one most decide to head toward.
Yet the draw of this special patch of shoreline has always been able to seduce creatives toward it. Turner twinkled at the seascape, Wilde, walked the promenade, Fleming gripped his pen, Coward grabbed a glass. Different timezones, different periods, different modes of self expression. Yet still they came. It seemed that the environment that Deal oozes, could offer something that nowhere else quite could. At Linden Hall Studio, it means very much to us that we are able to continue this cultural legacy – by bringing the very best of contemporary art, to this creative area of the world.
