The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of Stephen Hannock’s recent paintings on October 13th with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The exhibition will continue until November 12th and will feature new large and small scale paintings which continue his signature exploration of light and landscape.
Stephen Hannock was born in Albany, New York in 1951 and lives and works in Williamstown, Massachusetts. His singular techniques—extensive layering of color and collaged elements as well as lacquered surfaces that have been buffed to a dreamlike sheen—make each painting, no matter its size, instantly identifiable as his own. Hannock’s addition of diaristic texts and photographic images to the mountains, trees and fields is his unique contribution to 20th Century landscape painting. Hannock, in essence, interrupts the realism of his landscapes by making them self-portraits.
