Well known for her elliptical comics, Aidan Koch makes work that emphasizes tone over narrative and seeks affinities between objects, scenes, and moods. Koch frequently builds compositional tension by interspersing silence and space with moments of contact. In this composition, designed to be reproduced onto silk, she draws a parallel between bound hands and bursting florals, and offsets the pairing with a briny gray-green wash.
A. Koch, b. 1988 Seattle, WA, is an artist and graphic novelist. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
