Miles Aldridge

Virgin Mary. Supermarkets. Popcorn. Photographs 1999 to 2020

04 September, 2020 — 14 February, 2021

Through pop art, bright colours and dark humour, British artist Miles Aldridge makes us flinch.

His images are reminiscent of film stills: frames snatched from a broader story, pictures noted for their vibrant colours in smartly styled sets with an unsettling psychological vibe. Aldridge is a contemporary artist with a unique talent for inspiring the viewers to ask themselves questions.

“In my work, there is always a push and pull between high and low art”, says Aldridge.

— We live in an illusion of control in our lifestyle focused on consumption and social media. A Utopia we’ve created to achieve a fictional security. The truth, however, is that we have no control whatsoever. Because when life comes at us quick, and surprises us with things like disease, social injustices, riots, and pandemics, we’re incredibly vulnerable and stand defenceless. These are facts that my images focus and highlights on through the use of grand colours, carefully chiseled details, and a certain cynical dark humor, Miles Aldridge.
