Monotype printed on Arches Cover paper. Although monotype is typically thought of as a painterly medium, to make "Chin" Richard Hull used water soluble crayons which enabled him to convey drawn and scraped marks and sgraffito.
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.
