In this blog we will share with you our vision of beauty, balance, harmony.

As Mark Leach writes in his book Raw Colour with Pastels: “Sound is all around us, and it is musicians who refine that sound into something of beauty. As a painter, I have always felt that my purpose is to craft colour in a similar way, to see through the confusion and seek harmony and beauty.”

And we add: Words, fragments of sentences, spoken noise is all around us, and Ken arranges words in such a way as to capture beauty in the accidental, the ambient soundtrack of life.

THE SPANISH PEACOCK’S LAMENT

The absurdity of his beauty,
nature’s most flamboyant transvestite.
Probably an earlier version of himself
was a terrible dresser, a manic number-crunching    
nerd now paying with interest for the bad karma of  
bad taste, pointlessly gorgeous
like one of those would-be movie stars who
end up doing commercials, underwear or lingerie ads,
or low level sit-com work as the neighborhood knock-out,
brainless but nice, a running joke that chews gum. These days
the Spanish peacock has plenty of competition:
beneath its folkloric needlework every peasant blouse
is set to burst into a duet of chocolate colored nipples.
Unfortunately a bunch of chunky, sheepish Midwesterners
are insulting a silence of heat haze and wheat chaff, their
air-cooled bus—about the shape and color of Moby Dick,
                                                                     the whale, of course, not the book—
blocking a view of field workers making hay
while the Spanish Peacock lifts his skirts and lets loose  
with as haunting a cry of despair as ever heard in these parts.
