Beatrice Hoffman


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.
