Harry Kent in Kosmos Journal

.

Harry Kent, Fukushima Ghosts, 2010 

I have just received my complimentary copy of the current Fall/Winter edition of Kosmos Journal (here) which features my painting Fukushima Ghosts I. (You can read about the painting here).

I was contacted last year by Nancy Roof, the editor, who had discovered my Fukushima Series in my Flickr account, Art Informel (here), requesting permission to publish.






Kosmos is a bi-annual journal  associated with the United Nations. It works for global peace and understanding, so I was glad to agree and to waver royalty payment.


Fukushima Ghosts I in Kosmos Fall/Winter 2011 p.69
My work is featured prominently on page 69 of this 82 page edition to illustrate the article 'An Inquiry: Politics and Consciousness' by Mark Gerzon which touches on the issue of the politics of the nuclear energy industry in Japan.

Great to see my work acknowledged as a meaningful voice on contemporary issues.

  1. Hello Harry,
    Congratulations! It's a great painting and most important--it says something and touches people. I can't imagine what else an artist can hope for from their work.
    Your waiver of royalties is commendable and I salute you for it. It puts an exclamation point on your reputation as a Class Act.
    Bravo, well done and a tip of the hat, Harry. I fully expect to see more of this series on additional publications around the globe. It's a great series by an even greater artist.
    Sincerely,
    Gary.

  6. Yes, i'm certainly pleased, Elzabeth. It's a way of getting my work before people without all the hastle and politics of being exhibited. Think i'm just getting too old to be bothered with the effort. Different for the young who are trying to carve out a career.

  10. Thanks Harry for 'following' my travels. Off to Nambour on Monday.
    One should never too old to be bothered with an exhibition (get and agent). You should consider a public display of your work. Seeing it on the Internet doesn't do it justice!
