ABOUT ME

About the art the artist

Ken does not like to use too many words to express himself. He finds that, so much as with life as with art, over-explanation kills the imagination, preventing the listener and viewer from delighting in their discovery and interpretation of meaning. This rhetoric is manifested directly in his work, wherein space is often left as is, with minimal alteration or complication. This process of holding back from overworking the canvas asks: just how much emotion can he fit into each space?

 

Through minimalistic use of colour and form in his work, Ken conveys complex thoughts and nuanced emotions naturally, without overcrowding or over-explanation, inviting the viewer to engage with child-like innocence.
