an introduction by the artist
I create imagery to inspire you to think about your relationship to women and the world, while asking you to share a cerebral moment with that thing we call "You". There are moments in one's life when we look for meaning and purpose. We sense a void, yet there's a energy beneath the surface demanding to speak. They call us artists. I would rather be called someone who searches for the truth, an explorer. I am someone who desires to expose reality in its blatant raw form. I have photographed every part of the human form and still feel like that's not enough. Now I look for what's resides within the images hiding in a different dimension.
For inquiries, please contact me here.
I give you the female form at a magical moment in time. This body of work is less about creating life and more about a woman’s evolution in becoming something different.
Encounters is a collection of imagery created and compiled over the last 18 years. The imagery is coupled with text, odes and perspectives about the human experience and existence itself.
I welcome you into my introspective world. Allow yourself to let go, acknowledge the emotions that surface as you visually traverse the photographic landscapes from reality toward something else.

Patrick Stull, 71, a self-taught artist, works in many artistic disciplines. Educated at San Diego State University with degrees in psychology, economics and philosophy during the 1960’s, amidst the backdrop of the counter-culture revolution and the Viet Nam War, where his social consciousness and political views were shaped. He has recently ventured into the realm of surrealism, creating powerful imagery that reflects on our humanity while dealing with the meaning of art. Stull says, " His ongoing work is based in large-scale digital photography accompanied by sculpture/body casts, composition art, painting, poetry/prose and drawings. His art is then integrated, collectively, into exhibitions to provide the viewer a once in a lifetime experience.
