STILLS n°4Most of the objects I‘m attached to are of artisanal or natural origin. They are evoking good memories, like a travel that enlarged my horizon or a person who is precious to me. I also tend to collect natural artefacts on hikes or on beaches, mainly for their texture, colour and sheer beauty. Mostly free from utility and objectively without big value, they are precious to me and also inspire my work. Christian HaasBorn in Germany in 1974, Christian Haas established his Studio in 2000.
