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.

Self Improvement

SELF IMPROVEMENT

You meet someone who after a few drinks can shatter a life.
The kind of person only a Werner Herzog
would have the balls to open up to. Dennis Hopper
smile and David Crosby mustache. Amiable x-rayer of souls.
“I’ll tell you why you’re fucked up, man, just listen to me.”
Jungle boots and bush hat. Looks like he’s
just come in from patrol: long range
recon killer in full ambush mode. Calling every
bluff, exposing every subterfuge.
You feel you are up to it, however, you can deal.
So you speak to him of credit card debt, the girlfriend
who’s left you for a mysterious traveler in the carpet
trade who’s either a spook or merely a guy with a secret; that
you have given up on truth, that pleasure is what counts
now, and as cheap as possible. A six-pack of cold on a humid night
in Fayetteville, North Carolina. A stranger pressing ice-cubes 
to the back of your neck. Grace in defeat, a rare
moment of perfect coherence before the fog sets in again.
