Artist Highlight: Maxine Hull

An art psychotherapist when not passionately pursuing image-making in her studio, Maxine Hull uses the collage process to create both two and three dimensional objects.“In resizing, merging, juxtaposing the collaged images the nuances of content and meaning are altered to present and engage the viewer in a new perspective of the self in relation to the universe.” Hull’s fascination is to accept without judgment or discrimination the hideous and outrageous alongside the exquisite and sublime. She marries such images, manipulating them as a painter without paint while purposefully blurring them to overall abstraction. The viewer, seduced into close examination, becomes drawn into new worlds of images.
