"What I learned about color from Henri Matisse" - a survey of some drawings in black and white and in color Koch made on a trip to visit his father's birthplace in North Dakota.


February 1, 2018




Koch wrote an essay about his experience over the last 2 1/2 years as the Artist in Residence at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY. During that time he spent many hours studying literally thousands of original drawings by Charles Burchfield. He wrote "Time Travel in the Burchfield Archives" to underline the unexpected ways this led him to reexamine the course of his own career and how he goes about making his paintings.
