Michael Raedecker

prop

1998
Acrylic and Thread on linen

180 x 130cm

Both prop and occluded utilise the material of their media to push the boundaries of representation: the illusion of space, the believability of how a subject sits in a canvas. In prop, Michael Raedecker’s tree is firmly anchored to the ground by real string, as if the leaves, by being rendered in paint and not thread, might float in their aqueous form off the canvas.
