Katie Hoffman Artist Statement:
Using paint, I strive to convey inner realities: the push and pull of fleeting thoughts, the longings and ambiguities of things unspoken. I start with a nonobjective under-painting and no preconceptions but texture and color to enter into a dialogue with the paint itself. Though this approach to a start is indebted to Abstract Expressionism, the paintings are not completed in one dynamic session. They are returned to over a period of weeks or months, as more layers of paint, wax, and various media are added and some areas are abraded or scraped down to reveal earlier layers, in a mimicry of fragmented memory and experience residing in an invented space.

My creative process is largely intuitive. I bring recognizable imagery to the surface if it suggests itself during the process, but attempt to retain some of the ambiguity of the original vision.
