GRIMM is proud to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Michael Raedecker opening on June 5th, 2020. This is Michael Raedecker’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery, marking the inaugural presentation at GRIMM’s new Van Baerlestraat location in Amsterdam.
This will be the first exhibition of Raedecker’s demo works, an ongoing series of small-scale paintings which he refers to as his studies. The historical convention of artists’ studies acting as cursory observations, the steps of a process, is the subject of Raedecker’s inquiry and explored as a metaphorical framework. As in a study, the intuitive mark-making of fast pencil lines, or the splattering and dripping of paint is present, however they are controlled simulations of this process, executed through the rigor of embroidery. While the repetition of images seems to communicate through small variations, the ebb and flow of time, Raedecker’s paintings do not reveal the secrets of this parallel world. They suggest, but never reveal what may unfold in the haunting nocturnal light.
