A pivotal moment in Stephen Al drich’s artistic career occurred in 1968 when he met the influential photog rapher\, Frederick Sommer. A musician and art student at Prescott College i n Arizona\, Aldrich was soon enlisted by Sommer to interpret his innovative \, abstract musical scores\, thus beginning a long relationship of mentorin g and collaboration. In the last decade of Sommer’s life\, Aldrich worked w ith him on an extraordinary group of collages\, while at the same time\, de veloping his own unique approach to the medium. Working with fine 19th cent ury engravings as his source material\, Aldrich cuts and pastes imagery wit h mind-boggling precision and complexity. There is an obsessive quality to the work in its dense overlappings\, rhythms\, repetitions and patterns tha t may\, in part\, be attributable to his background in music. The New York Times recently commented that Aldrich has “cleverly pasted” fragments into “wild collages of people\, incidents and machinery to give an amusingly sar donic take on the Victorian Age.”
