For over 25 years he has explored his landscape themes, subjecting them to dramatic extremes of light and color combinations that are richly stimulating and at times poetic. His works are direct, showing the lessons of the Impressionist as well as Modern schools, working primarily in oils and pastels.
“I am continually drawn to the landscape and it’s infinite variations. The compositions are a starting point for unexpected things to happen. By pushing what is possible in the scene, new potentials are presented and I’m intrigued to follow. The works never follow a straight or efficient path because I am looking for what is not known and to bring it into form.
I am trying to thrill myself and offer something new and precious to the viewer.”
Ken works in his home and studio in Castle Rock, CO and conducts highly praised art workshops throughout the country.
