Spring Blossom 2016: artist talk Michael Raedecker

Michael Raedecker (b. 1963, Amsterdam), lives in London

Dutch artist Michael Raedecker presents a contemporary approach to painting. Whilst traces of historical genres can be found within his works, Raedecker juxtaposes this graceful aesthetic with stitching, cutting and embroidery. His paintings of dead flowers, abandoned interiors and empty landscapes speak about melancholia, both unsettling and enigmatic. In 2000, the artist was nominated for the Turner Prize. He had solo shows in Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (1998), Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, 1999), Centro Nazionale per le Arti Contemporanee (Rome, 2002), Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Basel, 2003), Salzburger Kunstverein (2004), Knoxville Museum of Art (2004), Douglas Hyde Gallery (Dublin, 2005), Camden Arts Centre (London, 2009), Gemeentemuseum (Den Haag, 2009), Carré d’Art (Nîmes, 2010), Wilhelm-Hack-Museum (Ludwigshafen, 2013) and Sprengel Museum (Hannover 2014). Raedecker is represented by Hauser & Wirth (London), Max Hetzler (Berlin), Andrea Rosen (New York) and GRIMM (Amsterdam).
