    This image encapsulates all that is engaging and distinctive in the work of Aldridge. He has developed a strong signature style: revelling in sumptuous colour that is shamelessly synthetic, he constructs pictures that are high on kitsch but made appealing through a playful, tongue-in-cheek humour. Here, his chalk-white recumbent nude is presented as the ultimate delight in a candy store of stylised glamour.
    AP1 aside from the sold-out edition of 3.
