Ryan Hancock is a Sydney-based visual artist. Hancock’s work is a meeting of ceramics and contemporary painting. Riffing on popular culture and shot through with dark humour, expressed always with Hancock’s bold use of colour, form and technique, the result is both immediately comic and complex. As associations between content and form are revealed, layered visual gags find their mark and rewarding details emerge.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 14 August 2019
