Opening Friday, March 21 at City Limits, Oakland is “Notes,” a solo exhibition by Aidan Koch influenced by writing: visions of consciousness, scattered elements, themes, drafts, and reworks. The exhibition will consist of drawings and paintings under glass tabletops, with interacting ceramic sculptures. For Koch, whose past projects include various comics and artist’s books, this format is an attempt to eschew narrative in favor of a more diverse, obtuse tableau of imagery. These works, seemingly disparate, build a more cohesive comprehension of the artist’s romantic subject matter. A limited edition artist book, Other Writings, will be on display as part of the collection, both as art object in reference to the display and a catalogue of the exhibition.
“Notes” is on view through April 19, 2014.
