TRENT ALTMAN

Pathway to Abstraction
June 14 – July 5, 2016
Reception: Thursday, June 16, 2016 6-8 PM

Trent Altman’s paintings exude a positive energy and boundary-breaking openness that lift each image beyond the standard landscape painting, demonstrating a clear talent and skill that Altman has achieved in the face of autism. “I observe and absorb the setting, then take my emotions and images back to my canvases,” he says. In his pictures, color and texture combine in an intriguing partnership that captures the tones and surfaces of the outdoors, while also transmitting a personal feeling. The settings he depicts are often beach scenes, and his subtle eye for color and light, along with his ability to create a dynamic sense of space, result in works that bring those settings alive.

Working on canvas in acrylics and mixed media, Altman incorporates painting and collage into his pieces. “I integrate multiple process beyond the brush,” he says. Those methods include slinging and spraying paint onto the canvas, and gluing handmade items to the surface of his paintings, augmenting their textural and visual variety. Trent Altman also has served as American Autism Ambassador, bringing the talents of those with autism into view—talents that are compellingly illustrated by his own work. 

Born in Louisville, KY, Altman continues to live and work there today.
