about this work

Hurray More Opiates and Bike Song (2012) was conceived as a 3 part artwork: an audio piece for the project Soundworks at the ICA London, the record sleeve for Aldrich’s band Hurray's forthcoming album and this print, one of the studies for the album artwork. The image for the print originates from a small acrylic painting of the same dimensions, and has been remade as a two-plate polymer etching and hand coloured by the artist.

about Richard Aldrich

In his paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations, Richard Aldrich is interested in the way in which objects can be used to explore the impact of time on our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Many of his works are created over the course of multiple years, which, when finished, still establish a sense of continuous becoming as Aldrich sees his artistic practice as a constantly evolving force. Using a variety of techniques (cutting, stretching and collaging, etc.), Aldrich moves in his work effortlessly between figuration, abstraction, and representation, often combining imagery inspired by people and places close to him (e.g. visual artists, writers, and musicians).

Richard Aldrich has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at the SFMoMA in San Francisco; and the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. His work has been shown in several group exhibitions at institutions including MoMA and MoMA PS1, New York; Palais De Tokyo in Paris; and Midway Contemporary Art Center in Minneapolis. His work was also included in the Whitney Biennial in 2010.
