Eric Dwight Hancock

Eric Dwight Hancock creates abstracted paintings of windswept trees and other natural imagery that conjure memories of his childhood in rural Georgia. Inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, the artist distorts his landscapes to the point of fantasy—until they are almost swallowed whole by sumptuous colors. The discontinuities and distortions of Hancock’s work follow a surrealist logic, functioning like lucid dreaming.
