Ken was born in Brisbane in 1960 and since the early eighties has been juggling dual careers in Art and Civil Engineering.
Abstract thinking versus a more logical approach – an unlikely combination but together give a diverse perspective to subject development. This combined with a love of all arts makes subject selection very complicated, but reinforces a passion to explore further into creative expression.
Many of Ken's works combine a carefully constructed subject with a vigorous application of pigment. Movement is paramount with the observer lead around the composition following the textures and shadows developed within the structure. The suggestion of detail will often be used in lieu of specific detail, the suggestion being used to support the subject but not detract with over-complexity. He has been described as a “colourist” and an “impressionist, a combination of both resulting in a unique approach to creative artwork.
Ken has been painting for over 25 years and is developing increased recognition for his work both Nationally and Internationally. He has participated in over 30 exhibitons over this period including 23 solo, and is a regular contributor to Australian and International Artist Magazines.
