First Woman by Beatrice Hoffman – £3,200

First Woman 

87 x 32 x 26cm
Bronze resin
“Based on ancient sculptures of European Mother Goddesses, this figure is so abstracted as to become a symbol – of strength, pro-creation, and the nurturing body from which incessant forms of life emerge.

Parts of the body inessential for procreation have been made smaller, of even left away altogether: the head, the feet, the arms and hands.Yet the middle area of the body – the womb, the hips, the stomach are increased in size and importance.

The theme is fecundity both literally and as a symbol of  other forms of creativity. Sculpturally, I was most  interested in two contrasting formal elements: of small and large size (head and hips) and of volume and roundness versus flatness or pointedness.”
