Study of the Soil
Collage on paper | 2020
This series of works on paper titled Cocooning and debuted in 2011, explores Tagada Hoffbeck’s affinity with color and its ability to communicate positive feelings. It is at once an ongoing exploration and a daily practice. The artist’s color selection usually includes three methodical steps; daily observation of nature captured via analog photographs, the curation of small collages using photographs in complementary colors, and after consideration, the creation of final artworks.

“Contemporary cultures are often extremely fast and ever-changing. My practice engages with slower tasks which demand commitment and help us to focus our attention. In my paintings, I depict activities such as growing plants and preparing and sharing tea, which also are parts of my daily life.”
