New artist @ Wyecliffe!
We are pleased to welcome a new artist to the ranks at Wyecliffe...Ken Rausch.
Gallery director Ben discovered Rausch's work at the Art Expo in New York earlier in the year and bought every single piece on his stand!
Rausch utilizes heat and acid etching, along with special paints, to create works that are iridescent, intense, and beautiful on a very different canvas...copper. He also uses specialized grinding tools to create texture and depth. The top coat is a multi-layered resin that gives an almost “glass-like” feel to each piece. The result is a painting that takes on a personality of its own as light hits the surface. Ken’s pieces of art are a perfect combination of motif, color, light, silhouette and shadow
Ken is native to Greater Cincinnati, and still calls the area home. He is inspired by nature, particularly the verdant, valleys and rolling hills of his home.
He graduated with honors from the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and his works in metal have found their place in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the US, Canada, Panama and the UK.
We are Rausch's only exhibiting gallery in the UK and you can view his work exclusively in the gallery or on our website:
