Christie van der Haak (1950, the Netherlands) is best known as the designer of a collection of fabrics with colourful ornaments and richly detailed patterns. Her works have been used as wall coverings and upholstery as well as autonomous works of art. Since working with computer-controlled weaving machines, she was able to skip painting from that moment on.
The drawings in the exhibition are early work. They are all chalk drawings with a repetitive pattern of lines or strips, descending from light to dark.
