“I believe that materials bring meaning to art as much as pictorial representation does. By manipulating how ideas take place ontologically, these become works of counter-realism.”
“I do asymmetrical or ‘action’ printmaking through use of manipulated whips, going back 20 years. Many of my works also involve experimental frescos, found objects, and other materials. Hybridizing my various proprietary techniques is paramount to my objectives. This can be true in other ways for my poetry, playwriting, and philosophy.”
“As an art collector I look for works, which as in my own work, the Artist has developed their own techniques; Art-materials literacy; and extensive experimentation and exploration of the various themes and series of works where they engage these ideas, techniques, and materials. Any good artist pursuing this kind of trajectory is a highly interesting investment.”
Ken Boe has also worked over 20 seasons in Yellowstone National Park. He has a bachelors in University Studies from Southern Illinois University, has also attended the School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago, and grew up in Evanston Illinois. He has mostly exhibited and published in local regional markets in the various places he has wintered in-between seasons in Yellowstone. Now that he has his own artist compound in the incredible art town of Bisbee Arizona, he is hoping to be able to focus on his work more year around, and begin exploring more international markets for his various works. Your contribution to his contribution will not go unrewarded.
