Artist's Statement:
Beatrice Hoffman is a figurative sculptor working in bronze or bronze-resin. She casts small figures and large heads and her style is expressive, distorting the human figure, or the head to convey an emotion, or human experience.There are both single and 'multiple heads'. The latter make more use of inventiveness in order to fit two or more, part- or whole faces into one sculpture, while still appearing as one cohesive whole, held together by curves, caves, and arches. The emphasis is on relationships and inter-actions, either between individuals, or more likely, within one individual. Different views of the sculpture reveal different, sometimes unexpected aspects of the same head. A collection of small bronze (-resin) figures express various states of being, or feelings: dancing, or tense and expectant, or restful and contained. Sometimes they are light-hearted, or humorous; they often give a solid, earthy impression. There are sculptures of both single figures, and couples; the latter focus on the relationship between man and woman in an unsentimental and non-provocative way. Their expression ranges from the purely observational to emotions like desire, protectiveness, being fulfilled or at ease with each other. Like her larger work, the figures attempt to convey an archetypal experience, and aspire to simplify the human figure, in order to reveal the essence of a state of being, or of a movement
