Trent Altman does not re-enact “The Embarkation for Cythera” by Jean-Antoine Watteau , but guides the viewer further through the Isle of gods, via his paintings. His style is based on the form of Watteau, in a combined style of impasto impressionism, synthetic cubism, and color contrast for energetic communication of focal points. The energy impact of all three styles as non objective art captured Oscar Wilde’s “Nature copying Art.” (Preface of Dorian Grey), and transfixes and comforts the viewers, through their language with nature, into an imaginative and innovative world of the gods by art.
