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.

La Mer

Maritim - Maritime 80 x 80 cm acryl/oilpastel/spraypaint on canvas by Karin Goeppert



SOMETIMES LESSER, SOMETIMES BETTER

There you are being pushed
   along the coastal path
by an eighty-mile an hour wind,
mouth hurting from smiling so hard.
Your spirit, escaping, races around
   like a balloon cut loose
at a child’s birthday party
but remains in your body because
frankly it has nowhere else to go.
On the umbrella pines, which are
leaning away like boxers on the ropes
who want to fight back but cannot,
   is light
the color of good English marmalade.  
The wind is
spitting wads of foam all over
   a disappearing beach. Meanwhile
Just three miles away in an atavistically
   smoky room,
a woman whose smile, without light,
has declared her absence, returns briefly
to show amusement  
   as your sometimes lesser, sometimes better self
shifts groaningly its fat ass from one side
   of a barstool to the other.
