About The Artist
Thinking in the western world is becoming increasingly linear.
Ruled by money, computers and power structures, our ability to
see and think is diminished by the callous use of words and
mathematics. There is a need to appreciate our own humanity and
to interact with the earth and the universe with respect. We
are the product of our linear thinking.
Through my work I seek to demonstrate the subtleties our
materialism hides and draw attention to the profound and
underestimated effect we have on ourselves and our surroundings.
Ken Nathan is an artist based in the U.K. His work has been described as
colourful, vibrant and energetic. Underlying is an aesthetic that defines the
frenetic lifestyle of the present era, focusing on the fundamental dynamic
of human life and our current preoccupation with 'progress'.
His artistic career had effectively begun by age ten, since when he has
produced artworks continuously, primarily through the use of paint. He
studied Fine Art in London and has had six one man shows in Britain with
many contributions to mixed shows including the ICA. He has work in
private collections in Britain and The United States.
The original expressionistic stance continues to underpin an expanding
freedom in his art.
His work now draws in new materials and disciplines. Much now includes
found objects with a move towards sculpture and collaborative pieces.
There is a growing interest in multi discipline and 'active' artwork
incorporating electronics and other mechanisms.
He likes to experiment, is innovative and quite prolific, producing thirty to
a hundred pieces a year. The scale of the work can be very varied with
pieces ranging in size from a few inches to ten or more feet. Much
remains essentially 2 dimensional and designed to be hung on walls but
sculptured pieces are increasing.
