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.

A Few Things That Make Life Worth Living

Fluchtversuch - Trying to Escape 33 x 39 cm Acryl on wooden board


A fugue multiplying its diversions,
changing its mind all the time but never forgetting
what it wants to sing. The pictures of which it cannot
be said where form stops and color begins.

The sexy woman suggesting with a glance
that she might easily
eat us for breakfast lunch and dinner
followed by espresso, a warm brandy
and—some clichés should not be resisted—a French cigarette.

Please check:
a) platinum light glancing off the splendid palms of Mallorca,
b) a plate of tapas, white wine, beneath an old plane tree,
c) a lingering, lazy kiss at dusk,
d) all of the above.

Let’s do it again.
Only different this time: viewing the Brancacci Chapel
while slightly high; a crowd free morning  
spent with certain mosaics in Athens; a hot dog heaped  
with sauerkraut, eaten in Central Park, yes, that’s it,
only this time followed by a schnapps chaser
which is known in some parts as “ burping the baby.”

The speechless stare that becometh blind oration.
