The most comprehensive survey of the celebrated Dutch artist Michael Raedecker’s work spanning his 30-year career

Michael Raedecker, the acclaimed Dutch artist, records the memories held within spaces and objects in his enigmatic and dream-like paintings. Suburban homes, tree houses, and empty rooms and vacant chairs, all float in haunting isolation. Muted hues are penetrated with thread and needle where the artist hand-sews forms into textural materiality.

Since the beginning of his career as a painter, Raedecker has incorporated embroidery into his works as a visual counterpoint to his washed-out paint application. This survey of his work, designed by the acclaimed Dutch graphic designer, Irma Boom, is the most comprehensive published to date, featuring essays by a unique and diverse group of critics, curators, artists, and academics.
