About Inness Hancock the artist
Inness Hancock is a widely collected painter of landscapes and abstracts. Her soulful approach to capturing the beauty of the sky meeting the horizon, the clouds meeting one another or the skyline meeting its own glimmering reflection has become her vernacular to communicate connection, solitude, and the human spiritual experience.
Inness’s fascination with light and landscape developed very early while growing up in Maine. Drawing and painting the dramatic coastline, capturing the ever brilliant reflections, and strong linear quality of the jagged rocks soon became the painter’s own search for identity.
In turn, this became a lifelong pursuit of her interpretation of humanity’s evolving state of being. In the landscape there is a reflection of us all. Connecting with the ground under our fee and the soil from which we grown heals our very souls. Light illuminates our journey toward enlightenment and the path on which we walk.
Lately her landscapes have evolved as well. They are more abstract symbols of experience, rather than a direct reference. Shapes that emerge from the strong foreground may evoke a sense of spires rising from their mosque, or a steeple towering over its church.
Inness has painted the desert of the Southwest extensively, all along the East Coast, and in such countries as England, France, Italy and Turkey. She resides in Bedford, NY and Northeast Harbor, Maine.
Inness studied painting at the University of Southern California, the College of Charleston in South Carolina, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts. She is a member of the Arts Student’s League of New York for 20 years and was the youngest member to be inducted. Her work was the subject of a thesis at Yale Divinity School in 2005.
