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.

Greetings from Kaminibassi


Kaminibassi 18 x 24 cm Ölpastell - c/o Karin Goeppert




WHILE YOU WERE OUT

The trees were offering their support.
They signaled this by shaking out the light in their leaves.
I watched a jogger steam past; a multiply tattooed girl
in unlaced combat boots sweep the door step
of a tavern, smoking and muttering beautifully,
her mind a mess but obviously still functioning;
traffic thickening in a bottleneck. You are trying
to decipher my message, wondering if you should
just give up, maybe go out for a beer, perhaps talk to the
neighbor you’ve been avoiding for a year or longer
because he always looks as if he has bad news for you
but is asking himself whether it’s worth it,
whether you really need to know
that the land lord is contemplating a substantial rent increase,
that a three-generational family of Serbian gypsies 
is moving into the apartment upstairs next month,
or that your wife receives a male visitor every Tuesday morning
during “home office,” and that you just might be better off,
in the end, clueless if relatively content, an occasional reader
of what life was up to while you were out.
