Well known for her elliptical comics, Aidan Koch’s pieces tend to capture the emotional tenor of a scene through small, meticulously observed details and gestures. Koch frequently visits museums to draw studies of art objects; this quiet rendering of a loom and the hands that work it carries the same contemplative and studious quality.
