Artists > Hull, Jory
Jory Hull studied painting and photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design at the Corcoran College in Washington DC. He is an acclaimed photographer, director and producer as well as a graphic designer, actively creating work for the past 24 years.
Hull’s photographs investigate and challenge our common views of everyday objects and views by altering their contexts and narratives. His project Twin Infinitives for example, offers the chance to participate in actively editing his collage work, making the viewer ultimately responsible for the final selection of the project. Underground improvisation is a group of findings, formed by spontaneous acts of alteration, deformation or destruction by the people and afterwards photographed by the Artist. These former advertising posters, now transformed into collages, show the ever changing impact of advertising within the city scape of New York’s subway. Flyover State on the other hand is a series of large scale, mounted photographs of varying size, taken by the artist on various transcontinental US flights between 2006 and 2009.
His projects range from fairly straightforward photojournalistic-type work to conceptual ideas based in the digital end of things. As diverse as his projects, are his means: he uses different cameras, as well as his computer to correct, composite and transform imagery. Galerie Julian Sander is the first gallery to bring this complex body of work to a greater audience. Jory Hull (1971) currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
