Kinuko Imai Hoffman

My work has evolved from my early training as a traditional Chinese brush painter. This influence is reflected through layers of bold colored undertones and minimalist color pallets emerging to the surface. Complexity and clarity are fundamental aspects of my work. I work in the mediums of acrylic painting, collage and assemblage and usually begin with a textured element. I incorporate a very structured process by adding elements to canvas and taking them away one by one until a finished piece emerges. The process allows me to experiment with varied materials, such as sand, paper, wood, string and cloth. I was born in Kyoto, Japan, and live and work in New York City.
