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 Warm Day in Iowa

untitled ca. 19 x 17 cm - after a photograph by Susan Mitchell





A WARM DAY IN IOWA

(miles and miles of corn)
listening to the irritating squeak

of the porch swing
swing to Mingus and Miles

Davis in daylight savings time, the swishing
of sprinklers bending backwards

then forwards
skinned knees, suburban malaise

(which is just being tired of things)
and a surprising amount of similar nonsense

in a limited, coffee table edition
printed by Oxnard Press.

Can the fridge
still be plundered of midnight victuals? She laughs, then writes

“I am leane with seeing others eate.”
Then:
“This is the time of the assassins.”
