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 uses a cool, opaque blue to draw together shape, line, and art-historical iconography.
A. Koch, b. 1988 Seattle, WA, is an artist and graphic novelist. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
