This heritage, however, has grown in importance over the years as he engages with an expanding list of traditional genres: landscape, interior, still life, vanitas painting, even modernist abstraction.

The point of departure for any given work is usually a detail from a catalogue, filmstill or magazine, which he then refines in the form of a sketch, and this becomes the blueprint from which a painting is patiently elaborated. The frequently ephemeral nature of the source material contrasts with the invariably time-consuming nature of the picture-making process, a unique combination of painting and embroidery in which pictorial illusionism is constantly undermined by the insistent physicality and contrapuntal play of roughly sluiced paint and painstakingly threaded yarn.

Recreating this found imagery in the medium of embroidery and painting, Michael Raedecker deliberately avoids any hint as to the epoch and content of his motifs. Thus he imparts to his works an aura of surreal timelessness.

Doing so his paintings become archetypes, pregnant with allusions to the surface on which the history of the genres is projected. The catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition: Michael Raedecker - The Show at Hauser & Wirth, London, June 4 - July 23, 2005 With a conversation between Alison M.

Gingeras and Michael Raedecker and an essay by Caoihmin Mac Goilla Leith. Hardcover 56 pages, 17 color and 7 b/w illustrations 9.4 x 11 in. (23.8 x 27.8 cm)
