Be Present with the Elements: Water, Wind, Earth & Fire
Ken is returning to his initial love of oil painting and hand crafted sculpture to redefine the art of living with open presence. By paying attention to how we interact with and learn from an ever changing natural environment continually being shaped by water, air, earth and fire we can return to "Wow!"
Many of his oil paintings are colorful adaptations of iPhone photographs Ken takes while walking: capturing fleeting patterns amidst the surroundings. His sculpture is a meditation on contrasts: solid and fluid; burned and raw, open and closed. It is made from hand-built clay that is stained and fired for long periods in sawdust and sticks to produce unpredictable results.
