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 PRESCRIPTION FROM DOCTOR DE SADE

A PRESCRIPTION FROM DOCTOR DE SADE

                                                         Lust’s passion will be served; it demands,
                                                         it militates, it tyrannizes.
                                                                                               Marquis de Sade

Here, take fifty
of these and if you manage to wake up
don’t call me in the morning. Better still
I want you perched atop a column
crushed by sunlight in some stony waste of
Syria or Sinai, a martyr to your failure of nerve.

Pain and pleasure are but Siamese twins
who share a couch and a plate of pommes frites. Nevertheless
next time an opportunity comes knocking, invite it in, offer a brandy,
then sit back and see what tingles first.

Maybe not a moment of perfumed nights will follow, or the perfect spasm,
though plenty of delicious remorse—think of your wife, her evenings
spent knitting a hair shirt for your conscience— oh sweat-drenched   
insomniac—or your husband working overtime to buy you
that vacation in Mazatlan you’ve always wanted—and no regrets to speak of.
