Epic in scope, the work of Trenton Doyle Hancock illustrates a narrative of the battle between good and evil. Working in various media, including painting, sculpture, collage, and performance, he weaves an ongoing narrative that reinterprets a mythical subject. In Hancock's vision, this primal conflict is a war between Vegans and meat-eating "Mounds," with the artist drawing inspiration from a wide range of diverse sources, from the apocalyptic paintings of Hieronymous Bosch to superhero comic books. Hancock's work has been exhibited extensively, including in the 2000 and 2002 Whitney Biennials, and in solo shows at venues including the Seattle Art Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania, the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, and the Contemporary Art Museum Houston.
