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.

Are you alone?

Eiswand - Icewall 100 x 80 cm mixed media (acryl/oil/oil pastel/coffee) on canvas by Karin Goeppert


She’s looking for someone with hair, a large
tanned expanse of carpeted muscle. Add to that   
an offhand sadism, a weakness for exotic weaponry, should be    
a subtle cheat in games of chance and skill,
but no conscience in the Shakespearean
sense, no consciousness, which supposedly makes
cowards of us all, only a mechanical perfection required;

should speak a few languages, and have
an elegant, almost hypnotically persuasive way
with high level personnel in Mexican resorts,
the lowly also known to smile, if grudgingly, out of fear
because he makes everyone feel a little uncomfortable.
He would say: If it works, do it: If I do it, it works.
Marcel Proust peering through a keyhole. Millions clicking
their mouse. Fast forward, says Mistuh Kurtz, it don’t mean nuthin.
