Dr. Stephen A. Kull: Paintings of an OB/GYN Physician at Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin, NH

NH Lifestyle Articles: The exhibit of Dr. Stephen A. Kull

The Art and The Science:
The Work of Dr. Stephen A. Kull

by Dan Crawford

Dr. Stephen A. Kull has years of experience as an OB/GYN and Surgical Associate at Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin...and he is relative newcomer to the art world. Dr. Kull began painting to fulfill a need: "I had a big empty space on my wall to fill, so I thought I would cover it with a huge painting," says Kull. The work, completed in 2001, is called Birchwood.

Dr. Stephen A. Kull displays some of his paintings at Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin, NH While his paintings include a variety of styles... still life, landscapes and abstract... they share a common technique: the paint is applied to the canvas by palette knife, rather than brushes. This method creates texture, in some case taking on a three-dimensional quality. Among the landscapes, lakes and the sea are often depicted in works like Evening Rise at Kennebago Lake.

While some of his canvases are best described as " moody" or "pretty," some genuinely cause the observer to ask deeper questions. Red Vision of Jim Eades depicts Buddhist prayer flags blowing in the breeze, as seen through a porch window. The painting conveys Kull's emotions surrounding the death of his father in law. "What appears to be a fishing pole, if you look closely, becomes a figure walking away," says the artist. The complexity and depth of emotion expressed in this work are wide-ranging.

Dr. Stephen A. Kull displays some of his paintings at Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin, NH From the primitive to the nonrepresentational, from landscapes to spiritual journeys, Dr. Kull s' art shows us scenes from nature and leaves asking about the spiritual world.

The exhibit is part of the hospital's Revolving Art Program - which showcases the work of local area artists. Kull's work, all in oil, fills the gallery space near the hospital cafeteria. The exhibits are expertly managed and maintained by Dan Feeney, a member of the AVH volunteer staff.
