Trenton Buck was born in Cincinnati Ohio (where he still resides) in 1998 to Regina Mary Zita Feist and Todd Buck. His mother told me that he has always been full of energy and would run around the house from a young age.
Later, he was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder). When he was in his grade school St. Catherine of Siena, he was then also diagnosed with Dyslexia. During his time in school his mom took him to many art fairs some of which she had her own booths in.
His mother Zita is an artist herself; she primarily works in fiber. Trenton has stated that his mother was the catalyst into the art world and her mixed with the art fairs are primary reasons that he is an artist today.
Currently, Trenton is a Senior at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Some of his recreational activities are Gaming and playing board games with friends and family.
Trenton Buck is a sculptor and painter working with found objects and materials. Currently he has been working of several sculptures that are to be abstract portrayals of faces. He makes faces because they are one thing that he can easily recognize from a person and witch lead to him being interested in their form and how that form can be manipulated while still looking like a face. Later he will attempt to translate these sculptures to the media of painting to see and further understand how the transfer will change the subject.
Trenton has said that one main reason that he creates art is his ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Due to his ADHD, he sometimes feels trapped overthinking things in his head. For him, art is a way to let go of his thoughts and see what becomes of them while not having to think about them. When he creates art, he will let the work do what it wants, if something does not go as planned, he will work it into the design.
He has stated that his work has no deep meaning behind them of baked into them. They are just meant to be experiments with form and material, while trying to empty his mind of thoughts. He just wishes that they might make someone chuckle or give them an idea for something they could do.
