CHRISTIAN VAN HAESENDONCK – °1957 (B), lives and works in Antwerp – his work includes
discontinued drawings, collages and meeting folders, to be adapted on the situation. Based on an art practice as
side-activity during other occupations, Van Haesendonck is using a drawing technique of immediate notation as
well as a shared language, common to everyone. Simultaneously he continues to remain so long as possible in
the development-phase of creation, balancing on the edge of the cut between representation and abstraction.
The two painted sketches, titled 'Concise maxims', shown in the exhibition, have been worked out on July,
16th, 2018, focusing on inscribed and circumscribed forms.
