Harry Hancock represents a unique voice in art today: the contemporary traditionalist. Using historical materials and techniques, he has developed an original artistic style that exploits the oil medium’s rich potential in new and creative ways. Juxtapositions of naturalistically rendered details with contrasting patterns and motifs evoke the haphazard, high-speed and hybridized experience of culture today. Hancock’s work discusses the elemental theme of man’s relationship with his environment. He shows us a world that is sometimes in harmony, at other times in alarming and surreal conflict with itself.
