Southern Gothic
2017 mixed media assemblage
created on 33 speed vinyl LP record 
for the Discolandia exhibition at Wonderland SF 12/9/17-2/9/18
Balancing Act
2017 mixed media assemblage in collaboration with artist Paul Madonna
18" x 11" x 4"
on exhibit at Modern Eden Gallery in North Beach of  San Francisco, a city that has historically inspired creatives and artists and has been a haven for free-thinkers. The current environment of rapid development and culture shifts have changed the way we are able to live, work, and survive, particularly in the creative community. Artists with a connection to San Francisco have been invited to create a work inspired by The City by the Bay. Whether it’s a love story or one of heartbreak or struggle, hear the voices that make up the City, past and present.
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 16, 6 pm–9 pm
Exhibition Dates: December 16–December 30, 2017
2017 SF Open Studio invitation

DianneHoffman's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
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.

Really wonderful stuff you got here. I'm very impressed!
I been thinking about giving assemblage a try myself and this was very inspiring.
DianneHoffman Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017  Professional Traditional Artist
Thrilled you found inspiration from my gallery! I recommend you give assemblage a try. My creative efforts began with 2D collage and gradually blossomed into 3D assemblage after being inspired by a Deviant Art assemblage artist. That was about 7 years ago and it changed my life forever more. Go for it! :)
