Edwin Koch Biography

Edwin Koch was born in 1937 in Missoula, Montana. At the young age of 18, Edwin moved to Portland, Oregon where he began his artistic journey studying for two years at the Portland Art Museum School. After attending the Rhode Island School of Design for 3 years (1958-61), he was drawn back to Oregon where he received his B.S. in Painting and Drawing the University of Oregon. In 1964, at the age of 27, Edwin returned to school where he received his M.F.A. once again through the University of Oregon.



Edwin Koch is a realist. Some have described his style as Super Realism. Through the use of oil on apple wood panels, Edwin strives to use classical values to guide his picture making decisions… such as objectivity, formality, balance, simplicity, dignity, restraint and austerity. Edwin feels that his paintings should be able to speak for themselves, especially when his art form is of such an explicit nature.



“Words are superfluous. It is the nature of the painting, that it should exist independent and separate from it’s creator.”



What is key to understanding Edwin’s realist aesthetic is the word “combination,” reducing an infinity of possibilities to a desirable and meaningful single expression.
