Richard Hull

Known early on for his paintings of abstract architectural interiors, Richard Hull joined Phyllis Kind, the primary gallery for many of Chicago’s legendary Imagist artists, during art school. More recently, Hull has returned to the loose-limbed figuration that was definitive of the Imagist era. With more romantic and painterly work than his forebears, Hull’s repetitive gestures generate abstract heads, bulbous hairstyles, and, increasingly, bodies and limbs. The artist imagines these abstract portraits as inner mirrors or containers in which his repetitive thinking and behaviors become visual.
