LAURA’S LABEL:

2011 Las Madres Vineyard Syrah

Hoffman’s folk expressions are contemplative, not reactive or a commentary about the world and her intention is to have viewers feel good looking at her folk art. Her habit of portraying women as rock solid in stature and demeanor, where good fortune has befallen them, provides strength to the female form that is historically celebrated in folk art. Her embellishments to the female body and her flourishing style are representative of her fascination with the notion of feminine and modern sensibility.

Laura often use Mexican influences within her work. She was very impressed by the women while visiting Oaxaca, Mexico. These beautifully powerful women often appear in her work. Laura loves the culture, the food, and the art and it is very apparent in her painting. Hoffman celebrates the ordinary stillness of women set in scenes of today’s American folk art with an impact that makes each piece of her work timeless and uplifting.
