Miles Aldridge
This Side of Paradise
Nov 15 – Dec 15, 2018
London, UK

A new exhibition, This Side of Paradise: Narrative, Cinema and Suburbia in the Work of Miles Aldridge and Todd Hido will present at Huxley-Parlour Gallery twenty large scale color works demonstrating how these two contemporary artists investigate the concept of suburbia.

Though works by Aldridge and Hido are visually dissimilar, both artists are recognizable for their distinctive cinematic color palettes, lighting and compositions, and the suggestion of narrative possibilities beyond the edge of the frame. Whereas Hido presents a shadowy, empty, exterior suburban world, Aldridge presents the viewer with brightly lit, garish interiors, focusing on the imagined lives of the women who inhabit them.
