Ken Browne was born in South inner city Dublin, Ireland. From
an early age he developed a passion for music that he later translated
into art. Ken is a self-taught artist and has been painting full-time
for the past 10 years.
For Ken, music is a way of expressing himself emotionally and will always
remain an important influence.
This collection of paintings by Ken was influenced by the music of Estonion
composer, Arvo Part, and specifically the recording of Spiegel im Spiegel
(Mirror in the Mirror) from 1978. This beautiful classical piece
created for piano and violin is the visualisation of looking into a mirror
and another one directly behind the looker creating a hall of mirrors effect.
The beautifully crafted piece of music has brought Ken to produce this wonderful
collection of abstract paintings. Autumnal colours abound in these creations
giving the sense of inner calm and peace.
Kandinsky wrote that when he saw colour he heard music and the importance of
music to the artists' craft should not be underestimated.
