Karine Hoffman lives and works in Paris. Rare figure in European painting, she develops her work through traces of ghost memory. Her paintings are constructed as an impossible equation, referring to forgotten places or lives, from Lodz to Vilnius. The artist defines her own painting as a filter that reveals what has fallen into oblivion, a place distant to herself where narrative fragments and personal obsessions arise ... painting as a world and as a place for a perpetual quest where action is relayed at the margin, giving way to phantasmagoria and play.

Théo-Mario Coppola
