Besides writing on his canvases, Hannock began in the 1990s to add elements that had personal significance-collaged papers, magazine illustrations, and painted symbols-into his landscapes. Here, in the naturalistic setting of the Catskill Mountains, he incorporated photographs of tiny figures, an Art in America cover, and a red AIDS ribbon to pay tribute to two deceased friends who both loved and painted waterfalls: Dan Hodermarsky (1924-1999), his first art teacher after prep school, and Hodermarsky's nephew, Frank Moore (1953-2002).
