Brigitte Radecki’s laser cut works are small gestures towards modernist pop culture. She finds treasures and pleasure in the smallest and most impossible places and uses them as images and working methods. There is humour in the whimsical disarray of tiny creatures dancing around each other and casting shadows on coloured planes. There is stanza and pause, pianissimo and forte: she articulates and plays with chance, illusion, shapes, forms, colours, and relief.

Radecki is an artist of meticulous methodology, and both her paintings and reliefs are made with great care and marvellous design. By imbedding abstraction into the fabric of everyday life, and by inviting the viewer to participate in its meaning, she draws attention to the fact that there is art and beauty in the everyday.
