In Memoriam Christie Robinson

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Christie Robinson passed away on Wednesday 8 November in London where she was undergoing cancer treatment.

Her funeral will take place in London on the 27th November

Christie was a pupil of Luc Veger and one of the founders of the Hangar after his death. She was a honorary member of the association in recognition of her contribution to the start-up of the Hangar.

For more than 10 years, Christie was a teacher at the Hangar. She was always pushing her students to higher levels, inspiring them to try new mediums – to work larger – to experiment. She was always encouraging and managed to get her students to excel.

Christie herself was an interesting and serious artist, who experimented and developed her style by working in different mediums – clay, resin, plaster, bronze – and more recently in metal.

Some of Christie's recent work:

All of us who knew her, have memories of her gentle personality. 
Her students remember her for everything that she taught them.
And for never giving up on a sculpture. 
She will be deeply missed. 
Our thoughts go to her family.
