About Beatrice Hoffman

About the artwork

"The posture of this sculpture describes the moment of surrender - be it from frustration that has ground down personal will and resistance, or from spiritual enlightenment. The effect and end result is the same: one lets something larger than oneself take control and responsibility - there is openness, the gaze raised upwards towards God(s), space, heaven..." 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 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.”
