Trent’s paintings and sculptures are seen as totems. There is definitely image magic in them and they appear more like effigies than art. They have the intensity of out- sider art with rhythmic obsessive marks and strange morphing characteristics. The sculptures particularly — part vase, part mask — feel like votive artefacts of a church, but not a church of organized religion. This is the new spirituality uncoupled from social construction and centered more on a direct relationship between you and your own mystical feelings.
