Stephen Hannock is an American luminist painter known for his atmospheric landscapes and incendiary nocturnes. The artist has demonstrated a keen appreciation for the quality of light and for the limitations of conventional techniques for capturing it. His experiments with machine-polishing the surfaces of his paintings give a trademark luminous quality to his work. The larger vistas also incorporate diaristic text that weaves throughout the composition. His design of visual effects for the 1998 film What Dreams May Come won an Academy Award. His works are in collections worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, and the Yale University Art Gallery. Hannock's painting of the Connecticut River Oxbow was chosen for inclusion in the recently published Metropolitan Museum of Art, Masterpiece Paintings. As well, Hannock and frequent collaborator Sting are the contemporary annex to the recent exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art entitled, Thomas Cole's Journey, Atlantic Crossings.
