Nature is often used as a symbol of emotional solitude in Michael Raedecker’s work. In room 4, his furnishings float tenuously against the beige ground: there’s a sense that this scene has been transplanted to a barren desert. Michael Raedecker literally fixes these elements in place with crude stitching as if to confirm their existence isn’t a dream. The small picture above the bed is reminiscent of Raedecker’s later landscape paintings; it lends a further confusion between the idea of interior and outdoor space.
