Track: Holotropic Art as an Expression of Inner Process
Martina Hoffmann’s paintings are detailed views into her inner landscapes - imagery that has been inspired by expanded states of consciousness. The Visionary Symbolism of Martina Hoffmann is decidedly feminine and places the ‘Universal Woman’ in an intimate cosmos. She transcribes her ecstatic experiences but also her subtle reflections on the nature of women in a realistic style which marries the fantastic to the sacred.
Martina Hoffmann has spoken on behalf of visionary art and culture at symposiums and festivals as well as having taught painting workshops worldwide together with her late husband, the Fantastic Realist Robert Venosa.
Her art and photography have been published internationally on and in CDs, books and magazines, including ‘Modern Consciousness Research and The Understanding of Art’ by Stanislav Grof.
The artist keeps a home and studio in both, the USA and France. She has exhibited her work since 1985 and is represented in the permanent collection of NAIA Museum in France.
