Using traditional techniques, Ken Rausch takes his work a step further by creating exciting, richly coloured works on copper and steel.
Utilising heat and acid etching, along with special paints, Rausch creates works that are iridescent, intense, and beautiful. He also uses specialised 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 is native to Greater Cincinnati, and still calls the area home. He graduated with honours 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.
