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.

It's the end of the World

Orange meets Black 80 x 80 cm acryl on canvas by Karin Goeppert

Because there is so much black in this work it was very hard to photograph it. I had help to reproduce it by my very good friend Alan Constant, photographer from San Francisco. Please have a look at his wonderful photographs:

Aufgrund des hohen Schwarzanteils war es sehr schwierig, diese Arbeit zu fotografieren. Hilfe hatte ich hier von meinem sehr guten Freund Alan Constant, ein Fotograf aus San Francisco. Hier kann man einen Blick auf seine wirklich schönen Fotografien werfen:


There are people who know how the world works
can explain the physics of an interface connecting the

viewer to a digitally enhanced module in a robot’s  
brain just before it cleans your toilet or what       

eternal recurrence really means or why our favorite café
in Oakland was called “The Edible Complex,” but

not why half the room emptied when we “crossed swords”
like a pirate’s flag but instead of skull n’ bones a smiley face

awesome the things that keep coming back   maybe it’s from
the joke of the month club but are you really writing

the sequel to “Forrest Gump”  shouldn’t there be a used-up content
clause in the universal contract stipulating enough is enough

and I’ve also heard that Forrest will win the first Nobel prize for
empathy   there’s something tacky about rehashing

faux innocence reimagined as a glitch in the left hemisphere of
the pre-frontal cortex and yet at least you are not remaking

the end of the world as we know it there’s plenty to be afraid of
but do we have to like it?
