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.

Dance Lessons Here, Real Cheap

I got the Blues - Ich hab den Blues 52 x 36 cm c/o Karin Goeppert


You’re on the run, aren’t you? Sit down here
next to me. I have more time than is good
for you but I think you will like me in the end.
Let’s start with a few dances. This one’s called
“Werewolf” and sort of resembles a tango with hair.
And the “Tonic Water Waltz” is for ex-alcoholics
who, as the story has it, are never really “ex”—
the way people who suck on e-ciggys are   
never really “ex,” are dying in fact to go back to
their corrosive old lover’s “Deadly Embrace”—the name,
by the way, of a decidedly  less wholesome dance.    
I’m famous for my “Rumba for Runaways.” This is
a dance of delicate delinquencies, of infractions
that matter only to the…infractor? None of this is easy
but I’m pretty sure you will catch on fast and stay a while
turning barefoot on this scruffy lawn for one of those
glimpses of eternity when everything finally makes sense.
