ABOUT THE ARTIST
Linda Hoffman works with old tools, barn boards,
tree trunks, shells, bones; materials she finds in the
New England landscape. Her gift is in her appreciation
of these objects. She seems to have a total trust in
their inherent qualities and in her ability to transform
them with a natural wonder and aesthetic purpose.
Hoffman's latest sculpture combines bronze figures with elements from the landscape - stones and branches - or old tools - such as wheels and gears.
"In this new work, my focus is on the human being as present in an environment. I sculpt a figure to inhabit a particular old tool, tree branch or stone. The figure is kinesthetically present, actively involved in a movement - whether sitting in meditation, balancing from a ring or walking on a rusty gear." LH
