AMSTERDAM.- The globally renowned photographer and artist, Miles Aldridge, is celebrated for his chromatically daring, highly finished works, which recall the glamour of cinema, the charge of the femme fatale set in the trappings of modern life. One of the world’s most inspiring image-makers, Aldridge combines a meticulous approach and a rare flair for drama and narrative.
Reflex Gallery in Amsterdam presents a collection of his recent work in a show entitled ART HISTORY – a chance to see Aldridge’s response to the artists who have inspired him and shaped his visual idiom. The exhibition runs from 7 April until 22 May 2018.
As part of ART HISTORY, Reflex will exhibit works from Aldridge’s extraordinary recent collaborations – with the artists Gilbert & George, Maurizio Cattelan and Harland Miller. Also included in the show are some of Aldridge’s preparatory drawings as well as Polaroids – an opportunity to see the creative inspiration and planning behind the finished product.
His Gilbert & George series, featuring the two artists in and around their East London home, represents Aldridge’s first foray into the process of photogravure. It is, he insists, a resolutely anti-digital process, and one that feels fitting for the work of Gilbert & George themselves. “It is a conscious departure back to analogue,” Aldridge explains.
