Gail Hoffman – Statement

( bio / statement / work )

The nature of time and how we perceive it has been a lifelong fascination of mine. I’m interested in the connections between quantum physics theories of time, dreamtime, and what Joseph Cornell refers to as “the Eterniday”, a timelessness within a passing of time. I see my work as visual metaphorical narratives, freeze-framed in a state of suspended animation. The bronze, glass, plastic, and light represent different states of reality. I make my work three-dimensional so I can view my ideas from multiple perspectives. The small scale allows the viewer to psychologically inhabit the space. These miniature assemblages are attempts to embody the infinite possibilities that exist within one moment. They are places where an event is continually unfolding and reconstructing itself.
