Hales Gallery is pleased to announce Trenton Doyle Hancock's exhibition Mound at Large at iMOCA CityWay, Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art.
'Intricate candy-colored prints, drawings, collaged felt paintings and site-specific installations work together to tell the story of the Mounds, a group of bizarre mythical creatures that are the tragic protagonists of the artist's unfolding narrative between good and evil. Storytelling is a central part of Hancock's artistic practice. Each new work serves as a contribution to the saga of the Mounds, portraying the birth, life, death, afterlife, and even dream states of these half-animal, half-plant creatures, and their aggressors, the Vegans. As a whole, Hancock's highly developed cast of characters acts out a complex mythological battle, creating an elaborate cosmology that embodies his unique aesthetic ideals, musings on color, language, emotions and ultimately, good versus evil.'
