Study for Tajes, oil on canvas, 18″ x 22″, 2009
Ping Pong Gallery presents Branden Koch’s first solo exhibition with the gallery entitled Valet. The opening reception will take place on September 18th and the exhibition will be on view through October 16th.
Branden Koch uses painting to mine a conflicted and immense cultural landscape; unveiling a profoundly visceral world where personal experiences, such as dreams, the physical architecture of the artist’s studio, and the gamut of art history all collapse into a technicolor lexicon of unlikely and humorous relations. For his fifth solo show Koch will display eight new oil paintings as an interactive tableaux provoking the viewer’s curiosity and involvement.
