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.

Adventure Trip

Tumbling Dice (Adventure Trip Series) 56 x 42 cm mixed media on canvas by Karin Goeppert


Glass tower, castle
holding pattern riveted
to sky, dominant, cock
like in which a cohort of courtiers
crunched by numbers, drunk on work
glances ceiling-ward as if sixth  
century monks wondering what God is 
up to in His corner office. Down the street
and tucked deeper than you can take  
in between wedges of sushi and 
designer doodads a delightfully 
frigid martini attached to a girl’s hand
sweats. A bar of soap smells like sex
and the squash court is essence of fake musk
a headhunter’s gooey patter the patois
on toast today. “You’re toast, sucker.”
Stuck in the middle of traffic far as the eye   
can detect is red. Green is not the color of money
by the wayward. Green does not mean Go
at all: get a new passport, hopscotch over to Mexico
and from there on to parts less known: that’s what it means.
Better: unless you have jail in mind don’t do it
bro lest the chopping block be thy head’s final rest.
