    Internationally acclaimed Texas-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock is best known for his ongoing narrative and theatrical installations that thrust the viewer literally and figuratively into his personal, idiosyncratic, and, at times, heretical weave of words and images. This exhibition features new and selected works executed across a wide variety of media, including drawing, painting, collage, and sculpture. The exhibition will also highlight a commissioned wall drawing.

    "We Done All We Could and None of It's Good" is one of a handful of chapters in Hancock’s ongoing narrative that follows the lives of “Mounds” and “Vegans” toiling in an ideological grudge match of mythic proportions. Hancock’s Vegans are a banished bunch of ossified creatures that see only in black and white—a satirical embodiment of those who stick too closely to the rules, in both art and life. The Mounds are ever expanding, furry, forest-bound creatures that are able to store vast quantities of un-relatedness. They are the perfect metaphorical mascot for Hancock’s omnivorous narrative enterprise—a method of taming divergent sources as varied as comics, horror movies, visionary art, biblical stories, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism into a delirious mélange of form, style, material, and their attendant histories and metaphors.
