Aidan Koch is a painter and illustrator. Her work, which consists of pencil sketches, water colour landscapes and other scenes, often appropriates sections of paintings, architecture, and things found on the internet through close, detailed cropping. Aidan says she’s building a specific aesthetic language by creating collections of disparate symbols. She is definitely up to something – her body of work feels like the scriptures of a past civilization. With a library of acclaimed zines, and regular illustrative work for The New York Times, Aidan’s unique style and tone is showing up all over the place. We were excited to feature her work in issue 12, including excerpts from her latest zine, Impressions.
