Notes: 

Texas-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock achieved his reputation when he was one of the youngest artists included in the Whitney Biennial in 2000 and 2004. Inspired by sources ranging from Hieronymus Bosch to Philip Guston and comic books, Hancock's typically crowded compositions--in which drawing often spills beyond the frame and onto the wall--feature half-human, half-plants characters engaged in complex and exuberant narratives of the artist's invention.
