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.

Amorph - Amorphous 39 x 39 cm


Obscure whispers from waves
and tree-tops confess their restless spirit;
then, as if to prove their point, depart. You contemplate
the Eight Sorrows plus their off-spring which
adds up to a total of sixteen. Numbers, though often oppressive,
enable you to grasp a nutshell’s infinite space. You’re
at home in theory, as they say; theory takes you for a ride
in a 1965 Galaxy 500 convertible, out on Fish Ranch Road
in the hills just above Berkeley, and dumps
you on your ass in the dust, near the rattle snakes
and joggers, laughing the whole time. So much for research.
If you must visit that white city perched
amid olive trees and citrus groves and hyperactive goats,
then go on, get out; we know
that your mind works differently from ours…
how does your mind work?
(Rumor has it that the rebels will seize the airport any day now;
trains have stopped running; food and clean water
are in short supply.) Rumor has it
that it doesn’t work at all, never has.
