CHRISTIE VAN DER HAAK: SPROKEN -- FAIRY TALES. Ed. by Jane Huldman and Philip Peters. Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, 2016. Published by Jap Sam Books, Heijningen. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 416 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9789490322601 In English.
Publisher's description: Accompanying Dutch artist Christie van der Haak's (b. 1950) stunning site-specific installation at the Gemeentemuseum's Projects Gallery in 2015 comes this long-overdue survey documenting 35 years of this exceptional artist's watercolors, paintings, objects and installations. Van der Haak moved from painting to designing fabrics as autonomous artworks and upholstery, wall coverings, tablecloths and the like. Operating in a field between art and design, her approach represents the active return by contemporary artists to Bauhaus principles of working across disciplines. Recently van der Haak has been transforming spaces such as museum rooms into places with a different meaning, employing her characteristic vocabulary of exuberant, dazzling colors and complex ever-changing patterns in a multitude of both two- and three-dimensional objects. Drawing on art history, mythology, contemporary social issues and generally everything she encounters in life, her work is like a fairy tale -- charming, seductive and beautiful but never without profound hidden layers of meaning.
