Beatrice 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.

'abstract Torso (Minimalist Modern nude statue)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: Abstract Modern Nude Pregnant Goddess Statue or Statuette in Bronze resin (Cold cast Bronze) for sale by the Polymath Beatrice Hoffman. Originally, this was one of three `Pregnancy pots`, conceived as a vessel/container.The sculpture emerged from the idea of emulating the Sensation of Pregnancy - very full, close to bursting, with skin stretched tight. I used strong distortion, doing away with the hips and legs, the base of the form transforming into a flower with the thighs as tautly three-dimensional petals.

'Primitive Woman (Bronze resin figurative statues)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: Bronze resin (Cold cast Bronze) Female Outdoor /outside garden Sculpture For Sale or for Indoors/Inside as an Interior Statement.She has been cast from an original Stone Sculpture, and she expresses the Compact, Compressed Attributes of that Material:Strength, Steadfastness and Endurance. Her neck is squashed, and her head hardly rises out of the body; her arms are so tightly held against her body, that they seem embedded - as if they contained no bones! Her stance is ambivalent: from the profile view she seems dynamic - her hair appears to be pulling her backwards, while her body is straining and bending forward as if struggling against the wind; from the front however, she seems immobile, rooted to the earth that she defends with all the massive volume of her body.

'Nurturing (abstract Mother and Child Outdoor statue)' by Beatrice Hoffman
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.
'Large Embrace (Tight Hug Love Bronze statuettes)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: Bronze Resin (Cold cast Bronze) Tight Embrace Lovers Sculptures For salefor outside in the Garden or Outdoors Sculpture for the Yard. Carved originally out of Stone, it shows and uses expressively the cramped and compressed nature of that medium. As the sculpture is apprehended by walking around it, one will discover the changing drama, and ambivalence of this close encounter: from one side the woman looks protective, from the other she looks slightly taken aback - while the man appears like a child too (a large head), and is very much the initiator and the demanding one.

She does not adhere to the most current diet and slimness ideal, and does not worry about her appearance, and impression made on others. She faces herself and the world head on, yet she is not aggressive, as she is not dynamic - she rests in herself.
'Triple Head (Modern Bronze resin abstract Head Art sculptures)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: Limited Edition Abstract Bronze resin (cold cast Bronze) Semi Abstract Post Modern Contemporary Single Head with 3 Faces Sculptures or Statues For Sale for Outside in your Garden or as a superb Indoor Piece Inside the Home Statue.
This sculpture is based on a multi faced Hindu God with the idea of unlimited, impartial vision, his three eyes viewing the world from a wider angle than the merely human narrow perspective. The divisions between the heads are embedded into a shared skin that inflates and deflates not following the laws of anatomy, but those of an alternative physical reality, that matches the internal, invisible and fluid movements of feelings. As Tom Corbett in his poem ?Gothic? describes so well, the massive volume of the head is supported and contrasted with the thin structure of the neck, indicating a lofty idea, with tentative connection to the ground - like a balloon.
'Looking Out (Large Head Bronze resin sculptures)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: An Outsize Semi Abstract Human Head Bronze Resin (cold cast Bronze) Out Door Garden Sculpture For Sale or Outside Court Yard Statue, a simple study of a Over Life Size Head, that is not a portrait of one individual, but a generalised human image. To me, this Head Represents Openness to Experience, Fearlessness, Attention directed equally to the Outside and Inside, and Awareness.

The negative space trapped between the woman and the man is as important as the sculpted form: Sufficient space enhances the close bond The themes are equally sculptural and emotional: strength, support and holding versus flying and lightness - gravity and its defiance. And interdependence: they need each other, define themselves by the other, would not exist without each other.
'Couple Side by Side (Life Long Love sculpture)' by Beatrice Hoffman

Description: Bronze resin (Cold Cast Bronze) Abstract Minimalist Young Lovers Hugging or Embracing each other in Farewell or Welcome Back.

'Coming Together - Dancing Apart (abstract Couple Danjcingt statue)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: Modern contemporary semi Abstract Couple in Love Dancing together and apart Bronze resin (cold cast bronze) statue/statuettes/sculptures/figurine/ornament Fr Sale for Indoors or inside in the home or studio or office, by the remarkable Beatrice Hoffman at her best. A sculpture about the rhythms of dance and of relating - closeness and distance, coming together, moving apart, all in the right time...
With a sculpture however, that movement is frozen at one moment, held eternally at one stage. This makes for the paradox of emotional ambivalence: the arms are embedded into each other, like umbilical cords, their legs grown together, yet their stance is straining to move away.
'Running Creature (Horse Semi abstract statues)' by Beatrice Hoffman
Description: Semi abstract Bronze resin (Cold Cast bronze) Horse Statuette, figurine or ornament, For sale Though intended as a horse, it could is equally be seen as a dog. It was created as a response to my toddler son - I was amazed by his constant high levels of energy, that made me look - in comparison - old, cautious and worn ! This a slight Departure from Beatrice Hoffman`s singular Bronze resin sculptures with their slightly extraterrestrial and spiritual aura. You can see that they will associate well with the Garden, the Home, and the Work Place with equal ease and add that essential extra dimension that Good Sculpture does. Have a look at the interesting range of abstract figurative human inspired sculptures and the one Abstract one "Abstract Waves".
