Christopher Burch is an artist, events organizer, and educator based in San Francisco and Louis. He received the Painting Fellowship for his graduate studies at the San Francisco Art Institute (MFA 2008) and graduated from Columbia College with a BFA in 2002. Burch’s works report from re-invention, mythology, folklore, and history intersections. Depicting, bodies, acts, objects, and ideas within a process of co-emergence, slippage, and simultaneity. Burch’s aesthetic, fully realized as a surreal personal language, utilizes the grotesque, the abject, and the ironic as accomplices within his form of storytelling. Burch’s works find their greatest strength in his eloquent, thoughtful manner of interpreting and investigating some of humanity’s most disquieting realities.
