Jeanne Hoffman

Jeanne Hoffman (b. 1978, Cape Town, South Africa)
lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. Whilst Hoffman has worked across various mediums, she is best known for her paintings, which explore the emotional and socio-cultural dimensions of place. Hoffman states: “There is a direct correlation between travelling across a landscape and the path of a graphic mark that transforms a blank page into an imaginary space.” In this sense, “Drawing” translates not only to three-dimensional artistic mediums and physical space, but also to a larger “stage”. Referential forms are assembled in relation with one another, creating movement, dialogue and meaning on the fringes of delineation. Hoffman has held numerous solo and group exhibitions, both locally and abroad, and has participated in residencies in Belgium, the Netherlands, Finland and South Africa.
