Richard Aldrich at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis

Richard Aldrich and the 19th Century French Painting
Saint Louis Art Museum
January 21 – May 1, 2011

Over the past decade, Richard Aldrich (b. 1975, Virginia) has assiduously orchestrated an eclectic body of work that reveals, in all its variation, a consistent sensibility: a keen appreciation for the complex disposition of painting and its potential to reveal the intimate and nuanced experiences that exist outside language. For his first solo museum exhibition, on view from January 21, 2011 through May 1, 2011, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis presents nearly twenty of the artist’s large-scale works, produced over the last several years that span abstraction, figuration, “object-paintings,” and text-based canvases.
