About Beatrice Hoffman

Beatrice Hoffman a figurative sculptor, working in an expressive, contemporary style. She is widely exhibited in the Cotswold, Suffolk, Bristol, Birmingham, Oxford, London, Amsterdam and Munich. Her sculptures aspire to simplify the figure in order to reveal the essence of a state of being or movement. Her heads are less concerned with portraiture, than with an archetypal experience.

Artist Statement of 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. Jung`s 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.
