Kenneth Ian Husband’s works have been displayed and sold throughout the USA. His love of art had started at a young age when his father would take him to local gallery’s and museums.
As soon as young Kenneth could he started studying art history and carrying a sketch pad and oil pastels with him everywhere he could. His original style became that of the European surrealists, as he felt most comfortable in unreal situations where his imagination could thrive. Due to economic hardships he had to leave collage and his love of art and became a off shore fisherman where he spent 265 days a year at sea and away from land. During and after this time he didn’t paint much as time did not allow. Kenneth settled in for the “American dream”, bought a house and seemed to be doing well until everything he was working for fell apart.
Now once again facing economic struggles and mental hardships he turned to a place that was all to familiar to him, his art! But in redefining himself he found that the surrealistic style now longer suited his feelings and view of the world. Kenneth wanted his new style to depict his latest life lesson that
although we wish to control everything around us, we are all set in a predetermined path that we have little, if any control. His first solo show of 2012 is presented by the YES gallery and entitled “Organic Lust” it is curated by Lesley Doukhowetzky.
Kenneth Ian’s paintings have an energy of their own. They are predetermined on their own path, either meandering like water or like flowing like lava formations. These paintings are actually formed by the forces of nature, looking like organic earth formations. He depicts abstract, organic forms which naturally blend together to create patterns replicating nature’s perfection. Ian’s trust in organic forms is evident in the lustful use of paint which creates interesting designs. Kenneth’s use of rich colors is just what one would expect to see in forces of nature. When you can not be surrounded by live natural beauty one might lust over being exposed to Ian’s works of art.
