John Hull tells stories of life passages with his painting – “a series of psychological stories filled with boredom and wonder.” He says, “…no matter how many different series or narrative ideas I explore as a painter, I think I end up telling the same story.” Hull received a BA from Yale University in 1977 and an MFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 1981. His work is included in collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY), the Denver Art Museum, the Israel Museum (Jerusalem), the New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York, NY) and Yale University Art Gallery (New Haven, CT). Hull has taught at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL; Yale University in New Haven, CT; and the University of Colorado at Denver. He is currently Professor of Painting and Department Chair of Studio Art at the College of Charleston (Charleston, SC).
