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.

MICKEY, THE NORWEGIAN BABY BOY

                                                                “Life is a combination
                                                                 of magic and pasta.”
                                                                                  FEDERICO FELLINI     

You used to give me lessons in the dark.
Then “Nurse Ratched” (someone’s
mom) switched on the light.
Instant loss of innocence. We have
changed, matured, have a developed sense 
of what we like and dislike. We still like
Chinese food but will it ever taste the same? Sweet
is a bit more sour than it used to be but I don’t
think you even care. Should I be worried? “Take out” is

“To Go,” and I hear chop sticks chiming in the wind.
This is known as recycling. We talk about “La Dolce Vita”
making a comeback of sorts. Fellini. Bunuel. David Lynch.
Like. Like. Usually like. Tend to dislike special effects.
Then real life takes over. Plans have to be made,
Epicurean adjustments, a handful of careful hours.
Everything else has been left to chance. There are
moments of quiet elation. Then real life takes over.
Mickey, the Norwegian baby boy, raises his
tail in delight, scarcely aware of what’s turning him on.
