Description

Richard Hull used water soluble crayons to produce this print. Monotypes tend to be painterly, but using crayon allowed Hull to achieve drawn lines and to utilize sgraffito and scraping techniques. Hull's current work takes the loose-limbed figuration of Chicago’s legendary Imagist artists to a more romantic and painterly place where repetitive marks reverberate around abstract heads and bulbous hairstyles. Hull considers these figures to be inner mirrors, containers in which repetitive thinking and behaviours are visualized. Repetition represents temporal rhythms and accumulating variations.
