Martina Hoffmann, painter and sculptress, lives and works in the US. The German-born artist spent her Martina Hoffmanchildhood in Cameroon, West Africa and studied art at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.
Her early work consists of portraiture and a series of pregnant nudes. These ‘Birthscapes,’ are life-size and depict the physical and spiritual realities of pregnancy. They are part of the large ‘Goddess Triangle’, a 20’ x 10’ multi-media installation piece, consisting of painted panels, sculptural elements as well as sound. Early African experiences became the inspiration for her sculptures ‘The Goddess Series’ as well as having had a great effect on her body of painted work.
