The works of Christopher Burch report from the interstices of mythology, folklore, identity and history. Depicting bodies, acts and ideas within a process of co-emergence, slippage, and simultaneity. Burch’s aesthetic, fully realized as a resistant personal language, employs the abject and grotesque as accomplices: both hinge upon empathy as the locus of their power. Through drawing, sculpture, installation, and other disparate materials, Burch exposes the artifice inherent to the practice of self -definition through exteriority.
