With her sculptures of abstract forms, heads, and figures, Beatrice Hoffman wants to achieve simplicity and abstraction, leading to clarity, intensity and concentration of form, in short: an essence. With her forms, she searches for a sense of rounded fullness contrasted with negative shapes; sharp angles between surfaces, juxtaposed with smoothness.
Hoffman’s themes often include the interface of mythology, psychology and spirituality. Mental states, relationships, human identities, maternal love, and solitude are universal experiences that feed into her sculptures.
Her sculptures are made in clay, stone, wood or polystyrene and cast in bronze (resin); they vary in height between 20 and 230cm.
