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.

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends

Abendsee - Eveninglake 19,5 x 29,5 cm acryl/coffee on watercolour paper c/o Karin Goeppert

                                       Want to make us happy? Give us something to obsess on.

I know someone who collects mail boxes. Rural routes, Missouri.
Lock it up.

A woman, an acquaintance of mine, who scours
East-central Europe for Soviet era sex manuals—
a joint venture I’m in the midst, the mist, the miasma
of reconsidering.
Pull it back.

And there are some haunters of public libraries
who, forgetting to eat, faint over back issues
of Cahiers d’ Cinema or New Poetics, Volume XXIII.
Show it off.

A desire to acquire scratchy fuzzy echoes of music/
oral epics last heard live in a small corner of the Persian empire—
lock it up—

in a dead language, no less, preserved on thread-bare tape
   in an Austin, Texas vault.
Lock it up. Pull it back. Show it off. Lock it up. Defend it
to the death, if need be, against all those who couldn’t care less.
