Since the early 21st century, Trenton Doyle Hancock has been merging comic book narratives and abstraction in his vibrant, dizzyingly detailed prints, drawings, and mixed-media paintings, in which he explores the struggles within himself and in our world. For the first nine years of his career, he focused on the creation of an epic, allegorical tale, shaped, in part, by the Biblical stories with which he grew up. Each of his works is a part of this ongoing drama, in which beehive-like “Mounds,” representing, in his words, “the Earth and stability,” battle with skeletal “Vegans,” who he describes as “a mob…unleashed to upset that stability.” Representative of the ongoing strife among humans, his compositions are full of words, colors, and his imaginative characters. Recently, Hancock has turned more inward, producing autobiographical works featuring himself as the protagonist.
