Profile image of Beatrice HoffmanBeatrice Hoffman a figurative sculptor, working in an expressive, contemporary style. She is widely exhibited in the Cotswold, Suffolk, Bristol, Birmingham, Oxford, London, Amsterdam and Munich. Her sculptures aspire to simplify the figure in order to reveal the essence of a state of being or movement. Her heads are less concerned with portraiture, than with an archetypal experience.

Sculpture description:
Mother and Child Abstract Outdoor Garden Sculptures, though it could equally represent a "Man and Woman", with the woman, on the right, being slightly larger or domineering.
The right head pulls away from the left, as she is half-heartedly trying to disentangle herself - an impossibility in the static medium of sculpture!
With the child/man on the left, I thought of a human bird chick that greedily demands food of its mother - pecking, kissing, feeding. The space between the two is cramped. Within their shared closeness it shows both need and dependency on the one hand, but equally the longing to find freedom from the responsibility of care.
Artist's comments:
Patricia Preece in Art Space 32/p25:
"This work shows two faces locked together in the most intimate way but their gaze is strangely distant. The strength of the work is the tension that exists between the two heads which are bound together. The mother figure angles her cheekto her child in a responsive manner but faces away with her eyes fixed to the hoizon.
At the same time the child figure nuzzles the mother, but its kiss is a pout thattells usthat is knows that the time for nurturing is over. The nurturer and the nurtured are also the rejecter and the rejected - to encapsulate this using such economay of means is an amazin feat.
It is this that makes the figure truly modern. I love you, says the big head, but its time you moved on - me and your dad have got things we want to do.".

Customer comment on 'Dog Fox' by Tessa Hayward
Dear Peter,
Enclosed is photo of my lovely fox, placed into an area which I`m developing as a small bluebell and white birch woodland. I`m absolutely delighted with the sculpture!
Would you please pass a copy on to Tessa (Hayward), with my thanks and very best wishes.
