OSEI OVID is a multimedia content producer now living in the Dallas area. He has chosen to create video presentations only using the cell phone as a means of expression in response to exploring the concept of intimacy within a space structure as a premise for Art Nomadic’s work. He continues to develop a visionary approach to image creation primarily based on a unity narrative.
Trent Mann was painting canvases and sculpting full-time when he started his lapidary business over 20 years ago; and a painter-and-sculptor’s approach to gem carving is apparent in his work. Trent also designs jewelry around his gem cuts, creating highly-integrated pieces where the metalwork appears as almost an extension of the carving.
His signature is the architectural pendants he calls assemblages: quartz crystals pieced together using fluorescent epoxy. Originally, he was making miniature cityscapes, sometimes incorporating carved wood, onyx, and colored stones. Lately, his assemblages have become more abstract, often with Deco overtones.
My artwork ranges from figure and landscape to nonobjective abstraction, and explores a variety of media, technique, and subject matter. I believe that creativity is a means of exploring identity, subjective truth, and spiritual relevance. My artistic intent stems from a desire to reference social and political concepts in the context of mythology, religion, dream motifs and sacred geometry. From my perspective, the process is the journey, where discovering a rich composite of intuition, reason, and reflection is the intention.
