The Visionary by DianneHoffman
The Visionary
2015 mixed media assemblage
14" x 8.5" x 4.75"

This month I have returned to the Cooperative Gallery I am a member of in San Francisco to exhibit several new works.  In my just released newsletter I talk about the show and give some details about how I came to create a couple of my most recent assemblages.   You can read it HERE: eepurl.com/bx6CzH
Meanwhile I have a full agenda this month that includes starting work on two large commissions that I booked in June, designing promo materials and updating the websites while stirring up an audience and making new bodies of work for both of my upcoming Open Studios events as well as the San Jose Holiday Art Market that I am producing in November. I also have another group show in SF in November with a similar deadline. So I have my work cut out for me. No. Days. Off.... till December.

I have a tendency to personify inanimate objects and feel genuine compassion for those that are damaged or disregarded. I see potential in broken bits and find beauty in rust and erosion. The older an object, the more haunting and alluring its ghost. Collage & assemblage art allows me to indulge these concepts by creating small worlds in a box where tall tales are told, jokes are cracked, emotions stirred, poems imparted and songs are sung.

By using images that replicate the past and objects that authenticate it, my pieces become storytellers, dream interpreters and memory inducers. They are innately lyrical and flicker along to their own silent film. Their dimensional nature and design intend for you to raise an eyebrow and lean in for a closer look.
