The paintings of autistic artist Trent Altman are richly evocative of the experience of being outdoors: the roughness of sand, the salt of a sea breeze, and the blue of a cloudless sky can all be deeply felt in his work. It’s no surprise, then, that Altman is most inspired by the beauty in nature. By employing sumptuous pigments and experimenting with unconventional materials to create texture, Altman conveys his own experiences in a clear and direct way that demands the attention of his audience.
