For the other two artists, the stories are just as personal. Harland Miller described his artistic influences to the photographer, one of whom being his father Alan Aldridge’s penguin book designs. The two connected over a love of screenprints, and so his response came from “the idea of creating a screenprint from a photograph, of going from mass media to art”. For Gilbert & George, performances artists who have dedicated their lives to being living works of art, Aldridge created “a vignette about the arrival of an androgynous young visitor coming to stay with the pair…the scenes are eerie and enigmatic but hint at an elusive narrative”. The exhibition is a diverse but consistent response to other artists creations: “I am responding to these three different artists not just visually but texturally by using photographic images to create different kinds of prints.”
