As an artist, Brigitte Radecki courts ambiguity. She speaks towards and from the spaces “in between.” She is committed to the sensuous materiality and visual clarity of abstraction. As a post-modernist and feminist, she seeks to disrupt and re-animate the modernist discourse, to open up spaces for alternative narratives culled from the silenced voices of others. She asks how, in our contemporary world, abstraction can mean – “mean anything at all.” She steadfastly gives priority to the human hand and the visceral engagement painting affords.
