About this video

"In my work I feel I’m finally being able to bring together the worlds of comic book narratives and the history of abstraction," comments Trenton Doyle Hancock. Hancock's drawings, installations, paintings tell the epic story of a group of mythical creatures called Mounds. While developing the most recent installment of his story, Hancock explains that his newest series of allegorical paintings are "colorful blasts of energy or communication from Mounds, these visions of hope. So in a way it's like God’s promise with the rainbow after the flood.
