Some of Hoffmann's paintings are as rigid and unyielding as math equations. They are sturdy, reliable, and seem almost engineered rather than painted, put together with a welder rather than with a brush. It would be a mistake to think however that Hoffmann's intention is to promote industralization. Painting would be an unconvincing medium to convey belief in mass production and manufacturing. The lack of any detail that might burden the eye shows that the forms, which lack evasiveness that characterizes the art in our frenetic age, are the point.

It may come as a surprise, then, that Hoffmann demonstrates such tenderness in her terse interpretations of landscapes, which are pared down until they resemble color field paintings. The gentle luminosity of these paintings go beyond the frame of what seems more of a window than a canvas. What these share with her more stolid pieces is a comforting cohesiveness. Hoffmann is audaciously decisive and unwilling to leave the viewer in discomfort. She is almost messianic, taking on what our nervous generation, glutted with choices, is often unable to do: selecting a path knowing that this means the rejection of infinite others

ARTIST STATEMENT

Talking environment…. We are moving around without recognizing the messages from the cities, villages, fashion and houses. I tell the untold stories with my paintings.

Painting and architecture is the obsession and passion of my lifetime. I like more doing artwork rather than writing about my art. Each work is a new invention. A unique visual experience to every person who gives a work a home or happens to glance its way. As I come to the completion of a painting I sense an original spirit infusing the composition. The many years of my work and study of fine art served me well and I feel my paintings show the result of intense private scrutiny and concentration.

I believe seeking peace is the highest of priorities one should have within their life goals. I try. When I think of what I would most like you the viewer to come away from a work of mine with is a sense of enjoyment and a little more peaceful than when it first attracted your attention.
