In room 5 Michael Raedecker creates the sensation of deadened slumber. Space is an important focus in his work. In this small painting, the dark colours have a calming effect: their claustrophobic intensity suggests the infinity of internal space, an endless numbness of psychological tension. Michael Raedecker gives a sense of paralysing weight in the chunkiness of the bed and tables; the lamp above the bed seems to bend under this sinking pressure.
