Well known for her elliptical comics, Aidan Koch makes work that emphasizes tone over narrative and seeks affinities between objects, scenes, and moods. This composition, designed to be reproduced onto silk, points to the unfixed and unfolding nature of Koch’s practice through its repeated studies of a hand holding a rabbit by the ears. In the top right corner, a series of phrases evokes hastily jotted notes, or eavesdropped fragments: “I’m very forgetful / I was standing in the doorway / Head bent to the right / Patterns of deceit / She leaned over to listen.”
A. Koch, b. 1988 Seattle, WA, is an artist and graphic novelist. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
