Eileen Hoffman

My work reflects upon what the color pink means to girls growing up in this culture—both the beauty and oppressiveness the color can signify. This awareness (since my teen years) coincided with my involvement in the textile arts and has helped me understand the intense level of energy, emotion and intelligence that people (mostly women) pour into their projects. I am also fascinated by the emotional qualities that pattern and repetition can bring to a work of art, both visually and through the process.
