CHRISTIAN HOHMANN FINE ART


PREFACE jd hansen Drawing her inspiration from her own personal experiences, jd hansen strips away any unnecessary details until she arrives at the core idea of each composition. Once she has revealed what she calls the “primitive essence” of each work, we can find a piece of ourselves in her work. Every small detail in the body language of her figures means something. A turn of the head, touching hands, facing bodies – hansen uses every subtle detail of the three dimensional vocabulary to capture our attention, while the strong and reduced lines of her composition will draw awareness from across a room. hansen has made a big name for herself through her unusual solutions in sculpture, whether it is her large and impressive outdoor works, compositions hanging from the ceiling or by use of different and unconventional materials. jd hansen is an outstanding sculptor and her career is worth watching closely. With this catalogue and the adjacent exhibition her potential becomes very visible. We are proud to represent this amazing talent and important Californian artist.

Christian Hohmann

IN HER OWN WORDS: “Each sculpture is based on a strong, initial concept that is deeply personal. It is defined and focused through extensive writing, but no sketching. I take that initial concept and build upon it, creating a piece that is emotional, but subdued. The piece is built up, then slowly stripped of anything that isn’t necessary, revealing the primitive essence of the subject. They are graphic, but not cold. They are simple, but truly complex.” EDUCATION BFA Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA 1994.
