Trenton Doyle Hancock: "The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin'" | "Exclusive"

Episode #190: Filmed in 2012 at James Cohan Gallery in New York City, artist Trenton Doyle Hancock discusses his large-scale collage "The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin'" (2012). Made from materials that Hancock accumulated over a fifteen-year period, including scraps from some of his earlier artworks, it provides a condensed overview of his artistic development to-date. The artist, who recently moved away from his longtime Mounds and Vegans narrative, describes the central figure as busting out of shackles and "trying to get free of something." "The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin'" is held in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts collection.

Influenced by the history of painting, especially Abstract Expressionism, Hancock transforms traditionally formal decisions—such as the use of color, language, and pattern—into opportunities to convey narratives.
