Trenton Doyle Hancock employs invented metaphorical characters as autobiographical representations relating to his life as an artist and an African-American man in contemporary society.  The Torpedo Boy, Painter, and Mound represent states of being and the evolution of character and purpose in life.  A catalogue accompanies Hancock’s first solo museum exhibition and traces the evolution of these alter egos in site-specific wall drawings, paintings, drawings, and assemblages.  Includes an essay by Lynn M. Herbert; a statement by the artist; and documentation on the artist’s career.

Traveled to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Texas Fine Arts Association at The Jones Center for Contemporary Art, Austin.
