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.

A Whiter Shade Of Pale

CONSOLATION PRIZE

His breath smells like women.
There’s a hint of clubs in his pallor.
Let’s click to his favorite apparition—
tall girl splashed with sumptuous perfume
in her cleavage possessing two of those
green eyelids in a Klimt. Bending her back
pressing his nose deep in her damp corsage
he longs to rip the ribbons from historic  
treaties and tie each one to
a naked thigh. But she doesn’t have one.

Nudity as concept or reality is strictly forbidden
here in the heart of the heart of homeland security.
Yet who doesn’t wish for one last fling
beneath wedding cake ceilings, a twirl
across floors of polished parquet?
(If that doesn’t materialize you will have to be satisfied
   with this trivial batch of
words steaming like clams in iridescent dreck.)
