My painting has been based on ideas derived from science and technology since the early 1970s. This came about by trying to build up the complexity of my then abstract paintings. I did not want a too recognisable image and so I used visuals based on printed circuit boards. By the mid 70s I laid the circuit boards down to produce perspective views as in "Flight over the Electric City" . During the 80s as a member of the Open Circle Group I produced a number of works with composers and writers which we called "Interaction" . I have recently returned to this concept producing works such as "Shake Yer Wig" to the work of Jazz guitarist Jim Mullen. In the late 80s I produced a number of bas relief works which were limited in size because of the techniques I was using and they were fragile enough to give a transport problem. This was overcome in 1990 by realising that acrylic paint would allow me to work in the round and then stretch the work to produce a flat piece. This coincided with a move in my ideas which became based more on the biological sciences.
In the 2000s I bought a computer and added digital painting to my techniques. This has become a major part of my output.
Sadly Ken passed away on 29th December 2009. Instrumental in helping me when starting out with Scotland's Artists I will always be grateful for his help and guidance and friendship.
