The annual edition from Christian Haake includes five original pieces in which the artist elaborates his own unique style of painting. He uses industrial production techniques with which he creates formally reductive but carefully detailed, multi-layered drawings. Urban and industrial shapes appear on various levels, seemingly invoking architectural fragments. Often combinations of memory and imagination form the basis for Christian Haake’s works. He explains that the idea behind the five versions of his annual edition is a train ride during which the landscapes quickly pass by in a blur. However, despite their movement, the viewer still retains a few abstract shapes. While the real world is suggested in the works, each differing in subject and technique, that world is not formulated as a clear representation. In connecting with the viewer’s everyday life, the works still maintain a narrative open-endedness.
