"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
Production still from "Trenton Doyle Hancock: 'The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin''" (2013)
"I'm always going out and gathering different kinds of textures and materials to keep things from being so stagnant or inbred. That work has probably fifteen years worth of collage material in it."
