"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

Hello Andrea,

I knew that I was following your blog for a reason. Wow, Wow, and Wow! What a beautiful spread. I am psyched for you and your well-deserved success.

Have you heard of the Saatchi Online Art(ist)Showdown? I have just placed my 'orange-haired, sake-drinking demigod' piece there for sharing and other such stuff. I'd be honored if you'd visit me there. www.saatchionline.com

ps I like to track word verifications...kind of like bibliomancy. This time my word here is tersoliz.

Possible Usage: "Tracey couldn't believe that the t(T)ersoliz had embedded itself into her hand. Everything started crackling and her skin became coppery and luminescent. Why hadn't it done this to anyone else before now? She acknowledged that she was surely starting a new chapter in the book of her life."
