Ken Flett

I am a Nova Scotia based visual artist and for many years I worked mainly with black and white photographs to which l added mixed media surface techniques. In the last few years l have mainly concentrated on mixed media without the black and white photos using stitching, embroidery, mosaic, and other hand done work that requires time and patience.

I work with themes of love and memory, hope and loss. I am interested in making the invisible visible, not just as art, but by giving importance to stories that would otherwise be lost and forgotten.

I also have worked with cloth dolls for many years, incorporating them into stop motion and other photographic work. I have taught many workshops and summer schools on pinhole camera’s, stop motion, doll making, mixed media, and assemblage. I enjoy teaching.

Ken Flett can best be described as a bricoleur. A “bricoleur” is a kind of handyman who enjoys adroitly drawing upon all sorts of everyday things – whatever is at hand – to attend to those things that make the good life.
