Trenton Doyle Hancock: Old and New Work

Department of Art Spring 2011 Lecture Series

Trenton Doyle Hancock was featured in the 2000 and 2002 Whitney Biennial exhibitions. His work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. Hancock's paintings often rework biblical stories that the artist learned as a child from his family and local church community or tell the story of the Mounds — a group of mythical creatures that are the tragic protagonists of the artist's unfolding narrative. The recipient of numerous awards, Hancock lives and works in Houston, where he was a 2002 Core Artist in Residence at the Glassell School of Art of the Museum of Fine Arts. Hancock earned his bachelor of fine arts from Texas A&M University and his master of fine arts from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia.
