The Fahey/Klein Gallery presents “Miles Aldridge: High-Gloss,” an exhibition of photographs and screenprints by renowned artist, Miles Aldridge. This exhibition features a selection of familiar and newly release images that, in pure Aldridge fashion, are glamorous – yet probe society’s idealized notions of domestic bliss, where sinister undercurrents swirl beneath a flawless surface. The exhibition opened on January 26, 2022, but will remain on view through March 19, 2022. Remember to confirm with gallery all covid protocols and guidelines –(proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).
Miles Aldridge is a photographer who is well known for staging elaborate mise-en-scènes that have a film noir quality. The technicolor dream-like worlds he constructs are vibrant, fragmented narratives that defy expectations. Long interested in art history, his highly stylized work draws inspiration from representations of the female nude in art, as well as in pulp fiction and pin-ups. As Aldridge states: “In my work there is always a push and pull between high and low art.”
Aldridge is a contemporary artist with a unique talent for inspiring the viewers to ask themselves questions. With a keen eye for social absurdities, disguising them in colorful beauty, and then elevating them to thought-provoking art Aldridge highlights a deep truth in his hyper-realities.
