With her sculptures Beatrice Hoffman aims to achieve a certain degree of simplicity and abstraction: ” Beauty to me is simplicity, clarity, concentration and must extend beyond decorative prettiness. Beauty is to be able to hold contradictions, tensions and ambivalence – it is a balance kept despite the conflict. I am fascinated by the” 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.” " />

About Beatrice Hoffman

About the artwork

"This is the sculpture of an animal, abstracted into dynamic, fluid outlines, vaguely based on a horse, and reminiscent of cave paintings. The expression I sought was an ambivalence of motivation: forward moving with its stretched-out head, but holding back and putting on the brakes with its neck and front legs."
