Michael Raedecker combines the traditions of Dutch landscape painting and abstract picture making, the imagery of Modernist architecture and the materials of fashion and furnishings in his spare evocations of uninhabited landscapes. This essentially empty canvas contains areas of detail suggesting indistinct landscape features or architectural elements, registered in painting and a combination of threads or yarns, applied in linear gestures, closely embroidered or hanging in loose strands.
