"An Ingenue's Hues and How to Use Cutty Black Shoes" is the title of painter Trenton Doyle Hancock's new exhibition, but the phrase's dark whimsy and prosaic flourish set the tone for the entire experience. Visually, Hancock engineers a rough-edged mashup of graphics, comics and illustration styles with a juicy abstract expressionist aesthetic. This he deploys in chronicling the ongoing adventures of (mostly) fictional characters inhabiting the Moundverse — a parallel yet all too familiar world of the artist's own imagination. With elements of superheros and classic mythology, alter-ego figures like TorpedoBoy enact narratives of adventure and protection, coping with the negativity and all-too-real world of racism and danger.
