About Trent Jackson

Trent Jackson About Trent Jackson

His humble beginnings flow forth from the changing tides of the Tidewater Virginia region. A native born Norfolkian, he describes himself as most fortunate to have experienced early life and nurturing in the suburban and rural trappings in Tidewater. He considers it an enclave that is both a habitat of transition and a haven of rest. His formal education included completing high school at Booker T. Washington, Norfolk, VA; followed by B.S. Biology, American University and M.S. in Cancer Biology Prevention and Control, from the University of the District of Columbia and Georgetown University Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center partnership. He still wonders about the influence and impact, if by any measure, that his formal education might still play upon his burgeoning artistic expression. Only the future can reveal this through the eyes of observers and their expressed impressions arriving from emotional intelligence. As a self-taught artist exploring his creativity, he welcomes the adventure of tweaking perspective, channeling the experience of the psyche, and discovering the resulting critique of the observer.

Trent firmly believes that the family factor is one of the greatest influences in life, and to speak further of his as pivotal and noteworthy for where he finds himself today. His parents traversed from meager substance to learning how to survive and even more to mold and launch him and as the next generation on against all odds to thrive. In honorable reflection their steadfast accomplishments, he realizes it is direct result of his embrace and engaged work ethic that evokes a story of indomitable hope, transition, breakthrough and perseverance. He stands triumphant in spite of life's challenging experiences and that tenacity give rise to the great capacity from within the creative genius in him to share his work today.

Working with his hands to create or deconstruct things came naturally to him during childhood as many cake plates, irons, glassware, dishes, and television fragments were his greatest products of re-creation. In addition, he excelled in art and science extending from kindergarten through elementary school and loved crafting simple creative projects. Today, in contrast to the fact that he has no formal training, he is often amused and mysteriously surprised at the unfolding and finished product of each new drawing, photograph and painting. He is led by his passion to express the voice experienced in a moment, the song that remains to transmit energy and wonder to the observer.

His love and development as a painter, photographer and graphic artist was catapulted further when he relocated to NW, Washington, DC. He set out to portray something totally striking, an instrument of atmosphere shift, a conversation piece of his own creation. He embarked upon a creative quest and developed three divergent themes - two forms of textured and polymorphic acrylic paintings and a collection of structured mosaic drawings. In reflection, these expressions were his attempt to depict swift, complex, boundary shifting, multi-factored changes that were happening around him, the resulting changes within, and more important a higher more beautiful pane of view that life would bring in the future.

Trent conceptualizes painting, photography and drawing as extensions of his unique poetic breath and heartbeat to creatively communicate experiences of triumph, hope, renewal, breakthrough, perseverance, and that which is simple, yet breath-takingly beautiful as an ENGINEERED INNOVATION of DE-SIGHNZ thus his company creation Enginnovatione DeSighnz. The designs are innovatively engineered with such passion and skill that leaves one breathless upon first glance. In addition, Trent espouses that poetry presents a mighty message with skill, whether put to paper or eloquently uttered; poetry flows in expressing moods, thoughts and shades of emotions in one's experiences. His creative skill is poetry. His paintings, photography and drawings like poetry share a common stage of skillfulness that allures and hypnotizes the observer. For him to compose his visual orchestrations it is analogous to, weaving, building and moving at an operatic pace as the cast of players increase in imagery, meaning, purpose, struggle, feeling and so much more. The visual impact is so intense, so immediate, and sometimes so inundating and hypnotic as the message breathes, sings, dances, or maybe even cries, screams and laughs in the evolving fusion of kinetics of the chromatic display. The visual poetic depth of painting, photography and drawing release profound levels of expression that are even more meaningful through color, texture, pattern, shape, tone, contrast, temperature and intensity. His desire as an artist is to render passion in visual poetic expression as an orchestration flowing effortlessly. Painting, photography and drawing reveal my heartfelt passions with themes and messages that I desire to share as noble acts of joy and service to enlighten the vision of others to connect with the beauty of life lived beyond struggle and adversity - enjoying the experience of life to the fullest.
