Ken Prescott

 

Among his generation of artists, Ken Prescott is recognized as an accomplished and methodical practioner of collage. Trained as graphic designer and working in advertising, his aesthetic is developed from out of his professional experience and love of travel. First discovered during his travels in Africa, his collage is born out of the lack of access to traditional materials. Likening the creation of a collage to sculpture, Prescott builds his images from the bottom-up, using everyday tools such as spatulas, paint sprayers, rollers and various kitchen utensils. Seeing his collages as literal presentations, the subject becomes both metaphor and image.
