Artist Spotlight: Kinuko Hoffman

Jan 18, 18


Living in multiple countries across Asia, studying traditional Chinese brush painting, and later attending the National Academy School of Fine Arts in New York, Kinuko Hoffman blends tradition and abstraction developed across her extensive training and experiences as an artist. She uses a range of mixed media in her work, such as pumice, paper, wood, string, and cloth to achieve an understated complexity.  Describing her artistic process and purpose, Kinuko states, “I combine materials with explorations of color and composition to create a harmony that transports the viewer into a meditative state where balance, drama, and clarity unite.”

Her paintings evoke a strong connection to nature and portray a variety of colors, which balance the landscape between realism and abstraction. Keep reading to learn more about Jane and her artwork.
