Manning's work is refined outsider, sculpture/mixed media/assemblage composed of found objects, wood, metal - whatever catches his imagination - along with his original sculpture. The recognizable found objects used to create the imaginative works are lost to the fascinating figures and stories they form.
Trent says it better than anyone. The art is derived of his personally, a 'somewhat disillusioned cynic, with an odd sense of humor, who clings tightly to his inner child. He draws from children's toys, an offbeat sense of humor, bringing to life fantastical work that is slightly eerie, macabre even at times, and often funny."
Bowersock continues to explore the representational surreal mindset, a tripping of the mind from the natural to the personal; a dream scape.
"My work is about what lies beyond our comprehension, like a hidden heart beat that nature and everything around us, the common thread and its many forms," Bowersock says. "It's about tapping into your imagination, tapping into a feeling. They often come to mean something more both as I work on them and later ponder them, and that's what I hope for the viewer – an ongoing exploration."
Bowersock's latest series is about storytelling and personal exploration that is connected to the bigger picture "all things."
The show is about the unordinary, about places that fascinate but we to often hesitate to go.
