For the month of December we present “Within Without” a duo art show by Belgian artist, Ephameron and Aidan Koch. Ephameron’s work captures moments, thoughts and feelings in a combination of various techniques and materials such as collage, drawing, digital printing and screenprinting.
The art opening on Thursday, December 6th will double as a release party for Aidan Koch’s Field Studies (published by Floating World Comics) and Zack Soto’s Secret Voice. Field Studies is a series of drawings from Aidan Koch’s travels beginning in January 2012. This book collects all 90 drawings in a perfect bound volume also suitable for travel.
The Secret Voice is an epic adventure comic like no other – visually, equal parts Fort Thunder and Eurocomic, and narratively a study of action and reaction with tongue-in-cheek character work and a troubled, unreliable narrator. Mysticism, kung fu fighting, incredible monsters, and unique world-building all come together in an action-packed and explosive comic book. Serialized weekly on the popular webcomics portal StudyGroupComics.com, The Secret Voice v.2 #1 collects the rollicking first year of full color updates. Creator Zack Soto will be in attendance signing copies of the new publication and exhibiting original pages of comics art.
