An exciting exhibition, titled Here After opens May 7, 2022 at Bridge Projects, Los Angeles. In addition to large scale sculptures from the Rose Window Series, Aldrich will exhibit collages that juxtapose astrophysics (contemporary stargazing) with medieval longing to understand the cosmos. A dramatic feature of Christian cathedrals, the Rose Window, is compared to the rotating galaxies made visible by today's advanced telescopes.
Ordinary life and deep time, mortality and transcendence, scientific empiricism and religious imagination are co-mingled in low-tech, cut and paste collage methods.
Artists in this exhibition will approach the question of paradise or afterlife or other dimensions from different stories or religious traditions.
