About the Work
In his drawing of an Ancient greek temple, Timothy Hull manipulates classical architecture with optical illusion, a clever stroke by the artist who employs a pastiche of found imagery and limited palette to create paintings inspired by the ruin and artifact of Greco-Roman antiquity. Artforum selected his 2014 exhibition at Fitzroy Gallery as a Critic's Pick, writing that Hull "treats a mixed bag of cultural symbols" like urns, vases, glyphs, epitaphs, and found graffiti sourced from the Ancient Agora of Athens and Pompeii archaeological site "with both humor and reverence."
Timothy Hull (b. 1979) will present his second solo show at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery in New York City this January and his first solo show at Ashes/Ashes in Los Angeles in spring 2016. Selected solo exhibitions include Fitzroy Gallery (New York City), Freight + Volume (New York City), Taylor De Cordoba (Los Angeles), and Brown Project Space (Milan). Hull's work has appeared in group shows in New York City at Mitchell-Innes + Nash, Invisible-Exports, Bureau, The Hole, and internationally at Tate Modern (London), La Dictateur Gallery (Milan), NOMAS Foundation (Rome), CoCo (Vienna), and Goff + Rosenthal (Berlin). His large-scale, outdoor public art sculpture, The Accelerated Ruin, was commissioned and exhibited by the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2012. Hull’s work has been reviewed and featured in Artforum, New York Times, LA Times, Interview Magazine, Art in America, and V Magazine. Timothy Hull received a BA from New York University and an MFA from Parsons School of Design. Born in New York City, the artist currently lives and works in Brooklyn and Warwick, NY.
