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.

SUCKING LEMONS

I know someone who sucks lemons twice a day. After which
he licks salt, then slams back a shot of tequila.
Could be, however, that he sucks the lemon after he drinks.

Schools of thought on what comes first are popping up on
   college campuses all over the country: lemon or salt?
He grits his teeth, then repeats the procedure. Whatever that is exactly.
Until an uncommon lucidity permeates his entire being.  

He once told me an interesting story. A diner on the outskirts of Texarkana.
Roughly adjacent to a 24 hour Marine Corps Recruitment Depot.
A waitress denounced for smuggling tiny shots of espresso into day old refills.

She wasn’t so much run out of town as deported to Berkeley.
After a brief interlude as a free-lance theorist in the English Department   
she joined the Gnostics in Santa Fe. This is what happens when normality is thwarted.

Out there they can drink all the arabica they want to. Or is it limes that he sucks?

  1. Karin, this new work is so striking. The bold color and shapes keep calling me back to observe. Interesting textures too. Was this an image from your recent travels? Would love to hear. Great work!
