Brooklyn-based artist Richard Aldrich (born 1975) is best known for his seductive yet challenging paintings that often push the boundaries of the picture plane. His multimedia works are typically created in oil and wax, also incorporating elements such as pencil, collage, charcoal and metal. This new catalogue, published by Bortolami Gallery, is part traditional monograph and part artist’s book. It features a selection of 88 abstract, multimedia works made between 2003 and 2013, and as such is the most comprehensive survey of Aldrich’s work to date. The plates have been laid out to wrap around from one page to the next, across the book’s French folds, so that, literally and figuratively, each painting is viewed with a part of the next painting in mind. This unusual design feature creates elegant and sometimes jarring juxtapositions that are entirely unique to the book itself.

Published by Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Foreword by Paul Ha. Introduction by Dominic Molon. Text by Laura Fried, Forrest Nash.
Traversing abstraction, drawn or printed text, collage, sculptural effects and humorous figuration, the work of Richard Aldrich (born 1975) constitutes an index of possibilities in painting. Aldrich frequently integrates objects such as canvas scraps or book pages in his works, citing rather than deploying the idea of a picture plane, and also loads his works with literary and personal references. For his first solo museum exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Aldrich presents 20 large-scale works alongside paintings by Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard and the Irish portraitist Sir William Orpen, selected from the Museum's permanent collection. These three nineteenth-century artists have very little in common with Aldrich, and yet are ideally counterpointed against his paintings, refocusing the works of all four in fascinating ways. Published on the occasion of this exhibition, this volume records this exemplarily adventurous exhibition.

Richard Aldrich's abstract painting juggles delicacy of line and palette with warmth of touch, a combination that fills his works with a cheerful humanity, or what Art in Review memorably described as a "slackerish cosmopolitanism." Collage elements introduce a playful take on Whistler's famous portrait of his mother.
