Full Artist's statement
With a strong underlying grid structure that permeates her work, Sarah J. Hull explores the natural variation that occurs in repetition. Using natural fibers and fundamental hand embroidery stitches, each piece takes on an organic quality that creates a dialogue between the materials, “the hand,” and the underlying grid.
Hull’s diverse background in Science, Architecture, and Metalsmithing from various academic institutions (including Wellesley College, M.I.T., Brown University, The Corcoran, and Revere Academy) comes together to inform her work. Her first solo exhibition opened at DCAC (District of Columbia Arts Center) in March 2017. She lives and has her studio space in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.
