"Ken’s work documents the public and private aspects of the American scene in the tradition of Bellows, Hopper, Bishop, Marsh and Sloan. Sometimes tempered with fantasy, the artist takes mundane, everyday events such as eating and shopping and translates them into a joyful event braced with irony. Figures move and turn in space through a world flooded with light and activity. A full, rich palette is used to enhance his highly animated subjects and angular perspectives. His vigorous style creates an environment full of movement and change. Complex points of view with multiple vanishing points are explored. The viewer floats above a scene that vignettes itself into separate worlds that are woven together by mark making, textures and light passages. These pieces establish their own mythology, a baroque burlesque of modern urban life in America."
