This was Trent’s second showing at the Silver Queen and highly anticipated after his 2015 collection SOLD OUT by day two of the eleven day festival. His works are collected internationally and sell as quickly as Trent can make them. Each piece is handcrafted in his private studio from found objects, clay, wood and fibers. Mortality Mask’s body was carved from wood, his arms  and hands are recycled metal wrapped in fiber. One of his legs is metal the other wood. His feet were cut from bowling pin tops then split in half. The head and mask were sculpted from clay and brought to life by Trent’s lifelike brushstrokes of acrylic paint. The sculpture is mounted on an antique demo chair. These miniatures chairs were used in the fifties by traveling sales men. Life size chairs were hard to carry  door to door so companies produced smaller ones to demonstrate the quality and design to the home buyer. Mortality Mask is truly a one-of-a-kind sculpture and would make an excellent edition to any collection. Trent’s macabre yet whimsical esthetic tells a fascinating story and will be the topic of conversation and thought for a lifetime to come.

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.
