June exhibition, Gretchen Koch

The Gallery at The Brooks is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibit of artist...

Gretchen Koch

Koch’s oil paintings frequently inflect her photographic images with texture, color and brush strokes she could not realize in one medium alone.  They are a way of processing her emotions; capturing a color and ferocity felt in her soul and realized on her canvas. Koch’s use of paint to manipulate, personalize, minimize and exaggerate her subject matter, leaves the viewer enveloped in a secondary experience, that of the image and that of Koch’s interpretation.(Diana Carey curator)

"I paint to process and release the emotions I feel. To manifest in color and texture my personal interpretations of life". Gretchen Koch
