Koch's work has a visual eloquence that is constantly at work recalibrating your brain and refocusing your eyes. Assured pencil work and yolky yellows give a shimmer to lunar cycles that share a little witchy-ness with Julia Gfrorer's comics and some social ambiguities akin to Jaako Pallasvuo's "Some Approaching End". Opal stone, blue candle burn down, darkness and voicemail. -EF
