Aidan Koch
Elements for Design: Apothecary, 2017, Unframed

Well known for her elliptical comics, Aidan Koch makes work that emphasizes tone over narrative and seeks affinities between disparate objects, scenes, and moods. This composition, designed to be reproduced, prompts an encounter between Art Nouveau imagery and Koch’s idiosyncratic and definitively modern iconography. It brings to mind a flash sheet used for tattooing, which is another element of Koch’s creative practice. A. Koch, b. 1988 Seattle, WA, is an artist and graphic novelist. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Pencil Unique 5.75 × 7.5 inches unframed
