Earlier this month Koch traveled to New York to speak at the Burchfield Penney Art Center. While there he visited the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, NY, an art museum that first introduced to him that landscape paintings was a vital tradition he wanted to pay attention to.

Koch wrote an essay about his experience over the last 2 1/2 years as the Artist in Residence at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY. During that time he spent many hours studying literally thousands of original drawings by Charles Burchfield. He wrote "Time Travel in the Burchfield Archives" to underline the unexpected ways this led him to reexamine the course of his own career and how he goes about making his paintings.
