As a babe in arms, Kenneth Lauder witnessed the sound of a Zeppelin over Edinburgh. Later, living in England, he studied at the Chelsea and Royal College of Art where he absorbed the academic discipline of the period. The introduction to the work of Braque, Picasso and Matisse prior to WWII opened his eyes to new avenues of discovery. After a period of farming in Oxfordshire he joined the RAFVR. Training to be a pilot introduced him to the vastness of the North American landscape.

The influence of being intensely near nature in very diverse ways and his appreciation of weaving in the Isle of Man, has played its part in shaping the content of his paintings whether in water colour, gouache or oil. After a number of successful exhibitions in the UK and abroad his work has flowered naturally, growing in stature. A working visit to Australia in the mid 1980's was a turning point in Kenneth's work. Impressed by the expanse of the landscape and the simplicity and meaning of aboriginal signs the visit had a profound effect upon the content of his later work.

The paintings on exhibition show an individual assurance and hints of structural threads from earlier years. The positive language of sign, tone, colour and concise balance of penetration and interplay within each painting allows the viewer an exciting exploration.

"I am always glad to see my recent work in an appropriate setting of space and light. It is rather like a family gathering, seeing all of them together.. all hopefully being agreeable and friendly."

"Give yourself time to be airborne within the limits of the canvas... happy landings..."


Kenneth Lauder A.R.C.A.
