New Edition by Trenton Doyle Hancock

To coincide with his solo presentation at Frieze New York, Hancock has created a new suite of four prints entitled Exchanging Variables, published by Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas. Hancock often revisits significant narrative vignettes and characters from his ongoing Moundverse saga—each subsequent iteration allowing for formal experimentation and the development of new layers of meaning and symbolism. In this quartet of aquatints, Hancock’s erstwhile superhero doppelganger Torpedoboy faces off with Guston’s hooded Klansman, the artist himself, a police patrolman, and a Pinocchio-nosed Christ. The inverted monochromatic palette, with figures delineated in greyscale and symbols in white, allows the artist to focus the viewer’s attention on the changing variables that punctuate the moment of meeting he calls “the Exchange.”
