I don't know what happens, but when I look at these paintings, I feel something gets fixed in me. Like some kind of balance is restored.
Ken is definitely a step ahead of today's painters with his 3D art. Until I had seen it I just thought it was a bunch of paint. Then when I saw it in real life it blew me away. I immediately purchased one for my home as a conversation piece. When people see it they don't believe what they see."
This is abstract art that, with the use of 3-D glasses, projects inches to feet from the surface of a traditional canvas. Segments of the painted images float in the air between the viewer and the surface of the canvas. Truly 3-dimensional, more abstract and inventive than current 3D printed material and film, this new art form promises to inspire a whole new wave in the creative process."
Ken is a real original in every way. Probably one of the most creative people I've ever met. It's always a pleasure talking with him or doing business with him.

I have known Ken Gidge for many years as a fellow Artist and I am always intrigued and fascinated by his unique techniques and his commitment to his work - in that he will give a 'work' I.e., painting an agonizing (or what would be to many of us) amount of time to bring it to it's perfection; seeing in it an opportunity to express his perception of some such thing that has filled his mind and soul. Ken, to me epitomizes the image of the 'True' Artist; pushing the limits of this physical world to bring to fruition that visualization that he sees in his mind's eye.
This brings us to Ken's 3-D process, a good example of his pushing the limits! I highly recommend Ken Gidge for his creative skills and his ability to come at a problem from differing directions, and always bringing excitement and joy to his work - sure of the positive outcome that always comes along and is welcomed with what must be exhausted Joy! And then he is off and running again, or more likely just returns his attention to one of the other 5 or more projects that he is simultaneously, heart fully working.
Ken's amazing art is something you just don't want to miss. It is beautiful and confounding at the same time. I still don't know how he does it, but I know that I would cherish one of his pieces.
