‘I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well. Unfortunately, I am confined to this theme by the narrowness of my experience’ Thoreau
Images, photographs, painting, poems and prose produced during journey’s around the islands of Britain, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Animals, birds and history, nature and landscapes. Watercolours, drawings, photographs and prints. Wild places, islands small and large, holy and empty, ancient places, kingdoms and mysterious sites. Waterfalls, Abbey and Castle. Architecture and nature, Coast and Mountain. Magic and mystery.
The journey is as important as the destination. It sounds grandiose but I don’t see any element of my art as seperate. My photographs originally came as note taking for my painting before becoming important aspects in themselves. This is something I have tried to show on my URL www.kenart.co.uk. The writing is equally part of the whole. It is an attempt to produce Plural Energies. All techniques communicate towards the whole.
I am an artist, photographer, writer and teacher living in the NW of England. I have been teaching for thirty years, making images for far longer.
An artist will take you on a trip around his work. He will tell you what to view and in what order. He will attempt to provoke a variety of responses, even negative one’s. He will appeal to your sense of wonder. He will ask pertinent questions of you whilst you view. No one should remain passive in front of a piece of art work. This artwork will and should ask as many questions of both the intellect and the emotions as it answers. This is true of all art.
