Biographie de HOFFMANN Godwin

 

Godwin Hoffmann works with very strict rules of composition.

This harshness doesn't exclude brush traces and paint leakage: the evidences of the pictural gesture.

His rigorous approach of art, plays with "forms" on paper or canvas. The support itself becomes an important part of the artwork.

His work, especially the one done with drawing charcoal, has been compared to the preparatory sketches of a sculptor.

" My artistic evolution has been determined by distance and abstraction.

On one side my quest for knowledge and truth inherited from my education, on the other side I look for the elementary, the origin, sensuality and the touch.

Obtaining a thick black that seems to absorb all light, pretending to the absolute.

This kind of work is very demanding"
