"In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous". Aristotle
Ken Prescott has been exhibiting his paintings for over 30 years in both solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada and the United States.
Working with Collage, the excitement of papers of every colour, texture and pattern and the suggestive qualities allows him to "build" his paintings. The juxtaposition of these elements which creates the sensuous interplay of form and colour – all this gives him the freest, most spontaneous expression and great pleasure as a painter.
Ken Prescott achieves his effects by applying acrylic polymer paints directly on paper, using almost any means that will give him the texture he is looking for – brush, knife, sprayer, trowel, roller. The results are mounted on cradled wood panel or stretched canvas using acrylic polymer adhesive. Two coats of acrylic matte varnish permanently seal the work.
