"Using Middle America as her muse, Kowch draws the history of a particular place -- invariably rural -- to the surface as it collides with a new reality in layers of metaphor and moodiness. The faces of her women may remind you of characters in a Tim Burton film."

DDMagazine #11

I'm very excited to be featured in the current December 2010 issue (#11) of the Italian-based mag, DDMagazine, a virtual publication of Daydreaming Project, an Italian production devoted to "the creative image in its many forms." I'm stoked to be shown alongside so much other amazing art.

Check it all out at http://www.ddmagazine.it/ and view some of their previous issues while you're at it; some truly great stuff. Big thanks to DDMagazine's editorial staff for inviting me to take part!

DDMagazine December 2010 Issue


"Anima” expands in a loneliness savoured with ravens and wind as companions. The untamable hair tells about a madness stroked without fear. Impressive feminine resonances.


Happy, sheltered, optimist in the best world of evertime, where an iPhone or a bag with famous griffe save from the wreck . The price of the new era is some insignificant genetic mutations, as snake-eyes or a gray skin.


Under water appears the tender brittleness of human being, that in the liquid element gains a shape of unreal softness. The moment of a held breath expands to infinite, and gave us a dream-like vision.


A journey with lot of quotations runs through ultra-human territories, and becomes a clear visionary reportage of excess, accumulation, ibridation. The pleasure of derailment, but in perfect control of image.


The classifing obsession of knowledge want to free body from the image and divine likeness. But surgical instruments and belts are not enough to extinghuish that strange luminescence that burns in human shape.

-Patrizia Miliani, Editorial Staff
