Roger Hancock


Roger Hancock is a Canberra-based emerging artist born in Sydney on 25 October 1956.  Roger always had an interest in art however only started his artistic career on retirement after 40 years in the Department of Defence; having serving both as an officer in the Army and an executive in the Australian Public Service.

In 2019, NAVA awarded Roger their Ignition Prize for achievements in Professional Practice on completion of the Diploma of Visual Arts through the Canberra Institute of Technology.

Since graduation Roger has exhibited in group exhibitions at Strathnairn Arts and Belconnen Arts Centre. The Lime Flamingo Collective exhibition ‘Outsidein | Insideout’ at Belconnen Arts Centre in Feb / March 2021 was Roger’s first public exhibition.

My art, like a chameleon, is continually adapting to influences around me. Experimentation is one of the core tenets of my artistic endeavour, an approach that keeps me highly creative. I remain passionate about Bauhaus, Art Deco, and styles that accentuate geometry. At the other end of the spectrum, I am equally comfortable with more fluid abstract styles. As an emerging visual artist, I am still on a journey of exploration and discovery. I gain enjoyment from creating an eclectic oeuvre of works ranging in style from spontaneous gestures to deliberation and precision.
