Piece description from the artist
I like doing artwork more 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.
Eva Hoffmann's paintings are as straightforward and logical as math equations. They are sturdy, reliable, as if they were engineered rather than painted, put together with a welder rather than with a brush. Her paintings omit any detail that might burden the eye in order to show that the forms, which lack the evasiveness that characterizes so much of the art in our frenetic age, are the point.
Hoffmann is audaciously decisive and unwilling to leave the viewer in discomfort. With near messianic zeal, she does what our nervous generation, glutted with choices, is often unable to do: she selects one path knowing that, in so doing, she rejects infinitely many others.
