This book documents 35 years of works by artist Christie van der Haak, who was awarded with the 2015 Ouborg Award. Originally a painter, Van der Haak moved on to designing fabrics deployed both as autonomous artworks and upholstery, wall coverings, table-cloths and the like. While operating in the field of tension between art and design these categories carry little meaning to her.

"Everything has structure", she says, as well as "Everything has a soul". Recently she has been transforming spaces such as museum rooms into places with a different meaning, always employing her characteristic vocabulary of exuberant, dazzling colours and complex ever changing patterns in a multitude of both two and three dimensional objects.

Her work is like a fairy tale, charming, seductive, beautiful even, but never without more profound hidden layers of meaning , drawing on (art) history, mythology, contemporary social issues and generally everything she encounters in life.
