AVAILABLE WORKS

Jennifer L. Hoffman

As an artist, I am perpetually caught in a conundrum, compelled to capture impermanent and fleeting moments while being drawn to those moments specifically because they are so transient. The challenge is to distill the essence of that moment - to find the heart of that very complex feeling of inspiration and translate it into two dimensions. For me, that search involves painting on location and in the studio; painting from life and from imagination. It involves experimentation with color, with pigment, with texture, with mark making and blending, with brushwork and finger smudges. It involves simplification. Using a variety of media including pastel and oil and cold wax, I hope to capture the elusive sense of wonder I feel in the natural world and share it with my viewers. As John O'Donohue writes in his poem, For Presence, "May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven/ around the heart of wonder."
