N-Jack-N-The-Box-By-Trent-Manning
This jack in the box sculpture was created by Trent Manning. It is a one of a kind piece that was made from found objects, wood, metal, clay, burlap and then hand painted. This colorful little Jack has a somber, macabre expression on his face but also delivers a whimsical presence to the viewer.

N Jack N the Box

Unlike most of Trent’s other sculptures the Jack’n the Boxes are mostly constructed out of new products, only using a few antique objects as adornments. This makes these pieces easier to recreate and helps him keep the overall cost down. Inside the handmade box, Trent’s designed a special spring allowing the ‘Jacks” to move freely, bounce and jitter around as you touch the sculpture. Jack is dressed in a colorful burlap robe with screws screwed in as buttons. His head is made of clay and hat is assembled from vintage found objects. The crank handle has no function and is only there for looks.

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.
