Stephen Hannock
Flooded River Rose Dawn

1994

About

Painted with oil in layers, Hannock uses a neon paint as his base coat. He then paints over and over and then sands down using an electrical hand-sander; a power tool. His quality of light is so remarkable because of his process; he builds from underneath, and then grinds down. By placing the horizon so low on the canvas, he creates a vast expanse. Puffy trees sprout out of the still, somber, and reflective water. The sky, a pale blue with hints of yellow, glows a bright red from beneath; a cue to the setting sun. Respected as one of the most revolutionary landscape painters in his generation, Hannocks love of the great Hudson Valley painters is evident in his work. His use of modern materials and practices distinguishes him from the normal Grenning Gallery fare. The luminosity and depth of his work stands up to any Old Master or 19th Century Master that we have ever seen, but with an added modernity – employing the use of innovative materials and collage to tie it all together. Hannock’s work can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, Smithsonian Museum, The National Gallery, the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, and the MFA in Houston, as well as the collections of Yale, Princeton, Harvard Universities and Bowdoin College. He has had solo shows in New York and across the country since 1985, and is currently represented by Marlborough Gallery, which has a global presence.
