Something Else by Danny Trent
Trent is a abstract painter working in acrylics and occasionally mixed media. His new body of work uses color, line, form and texture to convey an impression of a physical image of a place, an event in history or a fictional influence. He applies paint using encrusted house painters brushes and then scrapes the surface. This process of painting and scraping is repeated until the desired results are achieved. Trent studied Art Education at Richard Bland College and Painting & Printmaking at VCU. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. His paintings are included in private and corporate collections. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.
