HOMEPAGE KEN CRO-KEN


KEN CRO-KEN
ECOSYSTEM PAINTER

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!!!



The concept of earthwork art summons images of soil, wood, water, rock formations and other tangible materials.  ­The greater focus within m­y art experience is nature's process and the invisible forces at work on our planet.  Nature is my collaborator and as such, makes its every influence known.  I am an ecosystem artist developing each 2D and 3D painting in seasonal conditions of high heat and extreme cold, at various levels of humidity, to experience the power of natural elements in response to the materials I lay upon the canvas and elsewhere. 

Working paint like soil, my process is a physical investigation using paint.  
I navigate and negotiate paint like a river; yet, I know its source.  I define my activated palette as "Speed Elements", and reflect deeply on the relationship between the act of painting and the art of nature.  By mixing paints and catalysts, paintings are set in motion to recreate the push-pull forces that shape and mold all visible things and respond to distinctive environmental influences as further inspiration toward the completion of each canvas.  I am an outburst of nature.  Nature doesn’t just influence me, it leads me on a journey.  As I cooperate with nature, she rewards me greatly.   As a partner, nature is generous and I inherit all that she has to offer.  Simply put, I ride nature's coat tails.  As a result, I create microscopic, as well as, satellite views of the earth and places scattered throughout the universe.

While working with this "activated" palette, there is a need to become more sensitive to things occurring around me.  I endeavor to strike a balance between my inner and outer self.  If I fail to maintain this equilibrium, I can become an intruder to my own painting and can potentially scare a paint experiment; much like what often occurs when man finds himself at odds with nature.
