Edition Review

  • Trenton Doyle Hancock, Mound #1 the Legend (2015)

Trenton Doyle Hancock has worked with Graphicstudio for over a decade, and the workshop’s ability to explore unusual production processes suits his unorthodox approach. Hancock’s work centers on an epic pseudo-biblical creation myth whose protagonists are the Mounds—creatures that are part human, part vegetation. The narrative—involving a cast of god-like and demonic figures with complex backstories—continues to evolve with the artist’s career, and has been told through paintings, installations, sculptures, dance and any other format or combination that strikes him.
