Christina van der Hooft

She uses repetition and flat geometric patterns in her paintings.

Her compositions seem to pulsate between a flat tapestry and a cityscape with each viewing. 

Christina has been working at Mapura since 2013.. She is a very considered artist, in the studio she will often sit still and observe her work for an extended pause, before she makes a measured stroke.

“I like drawing and painting.  I don’t know if it makes me happy or sad.  I’m happy to show my work”.
