About the artist
Aidan Koch creates elliptical comics that challenge the reader to fill in the blanks of both image and storyline. When drawing her fragmentary narratives she asks, "what is the minimum information needed to move the story along?" None of her characters have names and she often whites out or removes elements to keep interpretation open-ended. Along with works on paper, she makes sculptures, ceramics, and textiles, which often incorporate recurring motifs such as artifacts from classical and ancient cultures.
Koch is the author of three book-length comics—The Whale, The Blonde Woman, and Impressions and has served as a panelist in numerous comic art conferences. Recent group shows include And Now in Dallas, TX and Hester in New York this past summer. Solo exhibitions include The Midnight Room at Open Space in Baltimore and most recently, Iris at SIGNAL in Brooklyn.
