Opening Christie van der Haak and Elmar Trenkwalder
During the past fifteen years Christie van der Haak gradually crossed over from painting to designing patterns for tapestries, wallpanels and upholstery fabrics. Ornamentation also plays an important role in the work of the Austrian sculptor Elmar Trenkwalder. His ceramic sculptures contain a curious fusion of eroticism and architecture. The combination of Christie van der Haak’s patterns and the baroque sculptures of Elmar Trenkwalder creates a modern-day Wunderkammer in the gallery of Maurits van de Laar.
