Aldrich’s paintings are layered with the process of their own creation as well as the inspiration of everyday life and experiences. In Time Stopped, Time Started (2015), splattered wooden slats, previously used as blocks to set paintings upon while working, bear the history of the artist’s studio process as excess paint drips have accumulated over the past decade. Enlisted as formal elements, the slats are affixed to the canvas, with slits cut in the linen above them. The weight of the wood allows gravity to stretch and widen the slits over time. Initially the slats, positioned horizontally, measured a process in time; now, in a vertical position, the slats activate a new accumulative durational process.
