John Trimble

John Trimble is a Los Angeles/Las Vegas based multimedia artist. In 1996 he received his Associate of Arts from Antelope Valley College and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2000. Trimble specializes in acrylic paints, pastels and colored pencil on various canvases and paper to create works representing his memories from an open perspective. Trimble has exhibited his work in Las Vegas galleries such as The Donna Beam Gallery, West Las Vegas Art Center Gallery, and City of the World Art Gallery. He has also participated in annual Las Vegas community festivals such as the Taste of Sounds and Soul Festival and the Springs Preserve Black History Festival. His works illustrate imagery of heightened hues of color and distorting or even removing faces of figures and objects to depict ambiguity and interpretive images much like in a dream or from one's memories. Although Trimble paints reminiscent memories of experiences, his intention is to awaken special memories in the viewers own conscious and subconscious thoughts about the subject matter. He believes this brief voyage of the mind evokes the viewers' perspective and independent interpretation. Trimble's subject matter is influenced by the desire to share special moments, new experiences, thoughts or even people with his audience. Through enhancing colors and augmented shapes, he attempts to entice viewer's senses beyond sight alone. The artist depiction is more than going to an intense jazz concert or showing you serene landscape; Trimble desires you, and the viewer, to experience and enjoy it with him.
