Nicole Hoeft

Painting is my form of meditation.   There is a tension between reality (realism) and the abstract.  I am continuously fascinated in the beauty of lines, texture and how the slight difference in hue can change the feeling of an entire painting.

When painting realism, I struggle to loosen my control and inverse, when painting abstractly, I desperately seek the familiar.

I find the complexity and process of building layers the most satisfying.  At the end, perhaps only a suggestion of the original layer remains, but understanding that even those layers that are unseen, are a part of the foundation.  The painting can not exist without them.  Like life.

Most paintings are built with molding pastes, inks, and acrylics followed by charcoals, oil mediums and glazes.
