Trenton Doyle Hancock | Texas: 1997 - 2017

August 9, 2017

Hales Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Trenton Doyle Hancock, Texas 1997 - 2017.  Trenton Doyle Hancock is one of Texas's most celebrated and influential contemporary artist and this exhibition with Rice Gallery is dedicated to the 2017 Texas Artist of the Year. 


The exhibition focuses on work made by the artist during the past two decades in which he has lived and worked in Texas, and features more than fifty works in a diverse range of media, including mixed-media, painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking. The works in the exhibition highlight a vast cross section of materials and textures that not only trace the development of the artist’s epic narrative, but also mark the significant evolutions within the artist’s dynamic and imaginative art-making practice.


For almost two and a half decades, Trenton Doyle Hancock has been constructing his own surreally beautiful and fantastical narrative that continues to develop and inform his prolific artistic output. Part fictional, part autobiographical, Hancock’s work pulls from his own personal experience, art historical canon, comics and superheroes, pulp fiction, and myriad pop culture references, resulting in a complex amalgamation of characters and plots possessing universal concepts of light and dark, good and evil, and all the grey in between.
