Roger Hull and Where He Works

A loyal reader recently wrote and said she would enjoy seeing where Roger Hull writes his many monographs about regional art and artists.   As he is currently using both offices (the winter office and the summer office) I thought I might visit.  (Also, I have noted that when I write about Roger or quilts, my “stats” soar…)

Roger Hull is currently writing about Portland painter Lucinda Parker to go along with an exhibition at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in the winter of 2019 (January through March).  But here in the summer of 2017 the work is well underway.  Usually he writes upstairs…amid files and ephemera and work made by former students of yore….

like Kent Lew…

Dan Schmidt…

friends like DE May

 

Photos galore…

these days he uses two screens, one for images and one for text…

But…it’s summer and we don’t have AC…so when the fan and Lee Imonen’s “Basket” study fail to cool, down we go to the basement summer office…

past Matt Ferranto’s portrait of RPH (R thinks he looks like Woody Allen in this one)

to the basement, or…as we now call it…the summer office…

two screens…

So there you have it…work places abound in our world.  Oh, and here’s one for the quilters…I’m working on a “rescue quilt”…

  1. brilliant 2 monitor acquisition. roger’s monograph prose reveals not only an intimate, natural tongue for language but an eye trained on staring at an image and then bringing back for others what can be seen if really looking. a writer writing about images having the digital image in one screen and the other screen for the words that come must feel, next to having the physical presence of the art, blessed. and 2 work spaces, one for cool and one for hot days. and all the paraphernalia. carousel transvue 140 slide tray boxes! somebody’s parents (roger’s?) with a young man in a sailor uniform. a woody allen look-a-like wildly brush stroked portrait painted by an eager, young, admiring student. and so much more, including a tremendous rescue quilt find! how many have you rescued, bonnie? you two are the bomb!
