Beatrice Hoffman

“Beauty to me is simplicity, clarity, concentration and a degree of abstraction. It must extend beyond decorative prettiness. Beauty is to be able to hold contradictions, tensions and ambivalence – it is a balance kept despite conflict. I am fascinated by ”strong form”. With both figurative and abstract sculptures, I search for a sense of fullness contrasted with negative shapes; sharp angles between surfaces, juxtaposed with smoothness. I am influenced by C.G. Jungʼs ideas of archetypes and equally by childhood memories of Sunday visits to a catholic church filled with Baroque carvings .I reconnect with the tradition of sculptures seen in places of worship, and work towards a spiritually potent image used in a secular context. Themes on the interface of mythology, psychology and spirituality – mental states, relationships, human identity, maternal love, and solitude are universal experiences that influence my artwork. I hope to enable engagement and contemplation: for the viewer to find reflected in my sculptures a feeling, experience or preoccupation, and through this empathy, solace, and understanding derive some healing.” Beatrice’s sculptures are kept in many private collections in Britain, Canada, the US, Germany and Holland. They vary in height between 25 and 90 cm; they are mainly created in clay (sometimes carved) and cast in bronze (resin). The edition varies between 5 and 9 for bronze, and 9 to 50 for bronze resin.
