About this artwork

Even before graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1979, Hull already had already exhibited at the Phyllis Kind Gallery in Chicago, joining the company of Roger Brown, Jim Nutt, and others. Skewing perspective, Hull creates mysterious, flattened spaces, as demonstrated by Edge. Working in crayon, a demanding medium, the artist created this drawing by pressing, smudging, and scraping into the paper, similar to how he might construct layers in a painting.
