About The Artwork

This piece is inspired by the Etruscan funerary sculptures of couples half lying at dinner, engrossed in deep conversation. I emphasise the bond between man and woman by the all-round oval shape formed by their intertwined arms, and the inclination of their heads. They are not looking at each other, but out into the world, sharing a similar view. Their arms round their backs offer protection; their locked hands closeness. The empty spaces formed between their bodies and heads remind me of the importance of space and distance in a relationship to allow for intermittent closeness between human beings.

« Beauty to me is simplicity, clarity, concentration and must extend beyond decorative prettiness. Beauty holds contradictions, tensions, and ambivalence, it is a balance kept despite conflict. » Beatrice Hoffman is a German sculptor based near Oxford in the United Kingdom whose works have been extensively exhibited on a national level. Her art explores the universal themes relating to mythology, psychology, and spirituality, as well as mental states, relationships, human identity, maternal love, and solitude. Hoffman's abstract and figurative sculptures depict female figures, large, symbolic heads, and organic or geometric forms. She sculpts in clay and plasticine ,a nd casts in resin and bronze. Her sculptures are suited for the domestic square, the garden, or pubic spaces.
