About CHRISTA HAACK

Welcome to the website of Christa Haack. Here you will find information about the internationally working artist Christa Haack, who has set up her studio in the southern German town of Gutach/Breisgau near Freiburg im Breisgau. Learn how the artist works, what inspires her and where you can find her wonderful works.

The freelance artist Christa Haack, who is at home in European metropolises such as Paris and London as well as in idyllic Breisgau, Paints in an expressive abstract manner. Her work oscillates around cold and warm colour spectra, which are always in dialogue with the artist's innermost being. The starting point of her dynamic abstractions is a subtle intuition, which she captures on canvas through different materials and magnificent colours. In each of her works the artist celebrates colour in its very own texture as the pure essence of painting.

The use of different materials makes the processuality of the artistic work very clear. First of all, textures are created on the canvas using the finest painting materials, such as marble powder and the so-called champagne chalk. This is followed by first applications of paint, which sometimes disappear again, so that only the idea of the former colour field resonates on the tableau. In further steps the artist uses stains and glazes to make highly pigmented acrylic paints vibrate. Christa Haack allows colored surfaces to break up, overlap, shift and sometimes destroy the areas that have been created. In an intimate examination of colour and composition she thus enters into a flowing creative process, The end of which can be felt anew each time.

Christa Haack was trained at academies in Paris and London, where she first learned to observe precisely and deal profoundly with painting materials before freeing herself from conventional motif-bound painting.

Through numerous workshops and the lively international exchange with artists, the work of the committed artist is constantly developing. Her work is characterized by painterly freedom, which enables her to translate her inspirations into colourful and profound paintings. The artist draws from an enormously rich visual fund, which she abstracts and makes visible to the observer as moving colour.

The works of Christa Haack are known to an international public through exhibitions and purchases, among others in Grat Britain, Italy, France, Switzerland, China, USA and Canada.
