Christie van der Haak, Miami Beach 2016

Wolfsonian, November 18, 2016 - June 11, 2017
Design Miami, November 29 - December 4, 2016

Last year Galerie VIVID introduced a tapestry by Christie van der Haak at Design Miami. This year Van der Haak will not only present this Redblue tapestry she designed 10 years ago but her patterns will also cover the exterior of the The Wolfsonian Museum here in Miami Beach.

Van der Haak draws her patterns in ink and colours them in with gouache. The patterns are composed of a variety of semi-abstract motifs, derived mainly from flora and fauna. Since Van der Haak’s work bears a close relation to Art Deco it brings together Modern Dutch design and Contemporary Dutch design.
