Here’s something that all our readers in Perth should be damn excited about, our good mate Hancock is about to launch his next show and it looks like an absolute ripper!
Having travelled around Europe for most of a year Hancock is most definitely back and has been churning out some of the best work that we’ve ever seen from him. Inspired by those darker corners, yet with a palette of colours that belies the subject matter, we’re pretty excited to see another solo show from the man!
“Depressionism is a new body of work by Perth born, Melbourne based artist Christopher Hancock. Created over the past six months, this body of work marks a significant shift in the artists practice. This series has seen Hancock develop an exhilarating new painting style, using complex figurative abstractions to explore dark and raw subject matter.
“These works have been created in a way that leaves behind pre-meditated construction and instead lends itself toward a process of chance and removed thinking. The application of the paint ranges from loose splashes of colour, to tightly refined areas, thus leaving room for the physical manifestation of emotion.”
