About Trent Altman


Artist Statement

(based upon the observation and comments by Trent’s Collaborative Team. Trent has autism)

“In my studio, on tables in my backyard, or on the beach on a sunny day, give me the opportunity and I will spring into the most genuine pleasure I know: painting.

Standing in front of a clean canvas, I consider with anticipation and choose from many different color options. Once I feel compelled, I take a deep breath and begin. I feel my way with a brush or other tools swiping the canvas. When I capture a pure emotion, I revel with a burst of excitement, my voice rumbles, or I may hum or sing. While scraping the jagged surface, I get more enthusiastic from moment to moment until my canvas has been completely finished to my expectations.
