Oh Ye of Little Faith
Oh Ye of Little Faith, will be Burch's third installment of his ever evolving graphic narrative, The Missed Adventures of Br'er Rabbit and Br'er Death in the Land of Shadows. In this project, the trickster archetype is championed as an embodiment of ambiguity and ambivalence, calling into question fundamental assumptions about the way the world is organized and, at times, offering new ways of transforming it. Acting as the shadow, brother, teacher, and enemy and ally of the historical southern trickster figure of Br'er Rabbit, Burch's own character Br'er Death, reveals that the trickster's antics are never comedic, but rather serious gestures of resistance within a hostile environment. Burch not only re-contextualizes, but also remixes the Br'er Rabbit folklore with his own afro-surreal aesthetics.
