Christopher Burch is an artist, events organizer, and educator based in San Francisco and St. Louis. He received the Painting Fellowship for his graduate studies at the San Francisco Art Institute (MFA 2008) and is a graduate of Columbia College with a BFA in 2002. Burch’s works report from the intersections of re-invention, mythology, folklore and history. 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 own 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.
