A review of BLACK5 WHIT35 COLOR3D5 by Allen Singer from The Visual Artworker, visualartworkerblogspot.com

“There are many facets to the atmosphere created by Ketchum’s paintings, some of which have a historical relationship to abstract expressionism through works by artists like Cy Twombly (calligraphic scrawls on white grounds) and also contemporary affiliations with artists like Wade Guyton. The primary impression of the many paintings by Kurt Ketchum is one of fragmentation that skirts the limits of graphic design to function as a coherent form of communication.  Ketchum’s art opens the door to poetry of the unexpected, and it builds a brand out of that concern.  This art can perform a commentary on our society – complexity viewed as bits and pieces filled with energy and determination.”
