Michael Raedecker occupies his own unique position within the field of contemporary painting: essentially dedicated to figuration, he replaces the concrete surroundings of his motifs with fields of color. His houses, plants, and laundry pieces can be understood as critical analyses of painting and pictorial composition and are often characterized by a mystical atmosphere. Typical of Raedecker’s works is the combination of paint and thread. The contours of his motifs are developed as three-dimensional drawings with the aid of colored woolen threads embroidered into the canvas. This comprehensive exhibition catalog features the artist’s works from Wilhelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen (DE) and the Sprengel Museum in Hannover (DE).
