Trent Manning

Artist Trent Manning is a disillusioned cynic, with an odd sense of humor, who still clings tightly to his inner child. Inspired by children’s toys, many of Trent Manning's mixed media pieces may seem innocent at first glance, but there is something offbeat, dark, humorous or macabre about each of his art pieces. It’s this balance of light and dark that have become a signature theme in much of Trent Manning's work. Using mismatched objects such as discarded pieces of metal, screws, wooden handles, old tools, and wire and them combining them with various mediums, such as woodworking, painting, and sculpting, Trent Manning is able to create a powerful piece of art with a sense of history usually lacking in modern modern artwork and materials. The following Trent Manning art pieces are currently for sale at the Silver Queen Fine Art gallery in downtown Park City, Utah.
