Area of interest :  issues of morality and ethics.

 I Want to Be at the Meeting After the Separation takes its title from a verse in a popular gospel hymn often performed in American Baptist churches.

” Like many of the titles Hancock uses, I Want to Be at the Meeting After the Separation has a personal history for the artist: the hymn was introduced to his local congregation by Hancock’s late grandmother and was also a favourite of his step-father’s, a minister in the local parish. I Want To Be at the Meeting After the Separation will feature a number of new paintings, part of Hancock’s ongoing grand saga portraying the birth, death, afterlife and dream-like states of a range of characters, particularly the Mounds (half-animal, half-plant like creatures) and their aggressors, the Vegans. The new body of work, however, is described by Hancock as “a new beginning” and shifts the storyline by preparing ground for the introduction of a series of new characters.”
