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.

You're No Good

Green Promise 63 x 47,5 cm acrylic on paper


Dude, I would make over that thinning
Rasta mop if I were you, I mean,
the whole Jamaican thing, if you
ask me, is so thirty years ago. And it’s no news
that your pecs are heading south, fast,
are in need of additional support.
Must everything drop? Collapse? Wither? When
was the last time
a lovely apparition on a train platform
saw you as an object of desire, obscure or otherwise?
When was the last time
you felt even a twitch of ambition, that
all consuming
what the hell
I’m doing this thing
that exhilarates, excites, deepens
all of life?
Let me guess: it was just before
you took two Alka Seltzer and tottered off to bed.
In the dream that always comes back
you tuck the girls in with
a good night kiss on their smooth, shiny foreheads.
Then maybe an angel starts to sing.
Or is that Linda Ronstadt?
