 ARTIST STATEMENT

Michele Hofherr’s artistic pursuits began with black and white film and her goal to capture something in its simplest and most pure form. As the digital age emerged her exploration continued, but she ultimately found the lens to be confined when compared to the images she was creating in her own mind. 

To push past the limitations of the camera, Michele began to paint.  In the artist’s words: “my painting began as a means to deepen the possibilities of photography and merge the mediums together” but through this experiment Michele learned that painting’s “limitlessness was much more enticing on its own.” From this revelation Michele has since shifted her focus to painting. She is inherently still drawn to black and white, and feels this works begins where her film negative ends. Through exploring contrasts and introducing color, Michele’s compositions evoke infinite possibilities and moods, allowing for a deeper and more complete interpretation of subject.
