HOMEPAGE KEN CRO-KEN

WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF
KEN CRO-KENEcosystem Painter











Painting in above and below freezing to learn about paint and nature simultaneously.



"I mix paints and catalysts to recreate the push-pull forces that shape and mold all things
to create satellite views of the earth and places scattered throughout the Universe.  
These are abstracts waiting to be called realistic, when technology catches up.  KC-K

"Nature has her own best way of doing each thing 
and has told us plainly along the way; 
and if we choose our own ways, as opposed to Nature's, 
Nature will not be slow in undeceiving us"

-  RALPH WALDO EMERSON -

I create a "paint portal" from which to observe the the dynamic invisible forces at work throughout the Universe.
Playing with scale, I view space in terms of light years I hitch a ride to the Universe and ride Nature's coattails.  (KC-K)

My art often reveals visions of the universe that are beyond my imagination,
 but, not my abilities and efforts to peer into the vastness of the Universe.

My  "reactive improvisations" with paint and nature allow me to observe 
how the universe appears but more importantly, how it moves.


Just as a planet's surface is a visual record of past events, 
my paint experiments come to apparent rest
and could be more accurately be called
 "painteds"
.It is the video that captured images that eluded capture by the canvas
that could more appropriately be called the "painting".

Each of the cards I give out offers an original work of art.
One side of my card is not exposed to the elements.
Glued to the other side, is the same repeated imagine as the front
and has been exposed to the elements.
Nature makes an original of everything it touches…
just as no two snowflakes can be alike.



"Personally, I love summer but professionally I prefer winter.
I accept that all we create are earthworks.  Mine is a physical investigation of our planet using paint.
As a result, I learn about paint and Nature simultaneously.

MULTIPLE ONENESS
TIME RELEASED PERFORMANCES
SETTING PAINT AND MUSIC IN MOTION FOR
KEN CRO-KEN, painter     Matt Sullivan electro/acoustic oboe





"The most unusual work I encountered was “Multiple Oneness,” an intriguing performance-art piece
by  the oboist Matt Sullivan and the painter Ken Cro Ken.  While Mr. Sullivan played a melancholy lament
over recorded sounds,   Mr. Cro-Ken poured liquids onto a canvas projected onto a video screen.
The colorful liquids flowed through the painting’s raised surfaces like yellow lava,
swirling in strange tandem with the oboe’s melancholy tunes."
