Ken Resen is principally a designer who has spent many years creating environmental graphics and interiors for large architectural firms. However, in the past few years he has returned to art and is now painting and drawing full time.
Like all artists Resen’s background and technical experience form the building blocks of his work, his passion lying in the color interaction as it defines space, form and motion to evoke emotional response. The environment, landscape, at the core of everything he expresses. Natural forms are a common feature in Resen’s paintings and drawings and he frequently abstracts organic forms to create a visual language that is both symbolic and decorative.
