Trenton Doyle Hancock

Hancock works with varied media, including painting, drawing, print, assemblage, sculpture, and literature, to tell a mythology all his own. A synthesis of serialized superhero format and Biblical allegory, his work chronicles the epic conflict between two races called the Mounds and The Vegans, respectively. To depict the story, he deploys the color palette and visual energy of 20th Century Abstract Expressionists upon scenes reminiscent of the swarming, didactic canvases of Northern Renaissance masters. His project Cult Of Color: Call To Color interprets this self-generated mythology and incorporates visual elements of his work through dance and production design. Developed in conjunction with Ballet Austin, Cult Of Color: Call To Color was performed at Austin Ventures Studio Theater, April 3 -13, 2008.
