Drawing upon the historical importance traditionally invested within painting, Raedecker presents a thoroughly contemporary approach to his chosen medium. Whilst traces of a Dutch mastery for still-life can be found within his works, Raedecker juxtaposes this graceful aesthetic with a more physical process of stitching, cutting and embroidery. Primarily working with a monochromatic palette, Raedecker’s focus on the melancholia of modern life – with paintings of despoiled architecture and empty spaces – are both unsettling and enigmatic. He's influenced by expressionism.
