Contemporary visionary artist, Martina Hoffmann offers us an overview of her Interior Landscapes at Galerie ‘Atelier Porte-Soleil’ from May 24 to June 25, 2013 in Paris. Opening May 24 at 6:30 PM.

The Visionary Realism of Martina Hoffmann is decidedly feminine and places universal woman in an intimate cosmos: on of interior landscapes, dreams, meditation, and shamanic journeys. She transcribes her ecstatic experiences but also her subtle reflections on the nature of woman in a realistic style in which the fantastic goes alongside the sacred. 

Martina Hoffmann has also taught painting workshops worldwide together with her late partner, the Fantastic Realist, Robert Venosa at cultural institutes such as Esalen in California, Omega in New York and Skyros in Greece. 

The artist has spoken on behalf of visionary art and culture, disseminating her knowledge at international conferences such as The AllChemical Conference, à Kona (Hawaii), Mindstates à Berkeley, Convergence and The International Amazonian Shamanism Conference à Iquitos (Perou), Estados Modificados De Consciencia, Université de Cuernavaca Mexico, Chimeria, Sedan, France, Prophets Conference, Etats Unis et The Promethean Impulse: Consciousness & Art, Museum HR Giger, Gruyeres, Switzerland.

My art has greatly been informed by altered states of consciousness, such as the dream state, meditation and shamanic journeys, with the sacred feminine as a central theme. It attempts to portray the language that lies beyond words; truths and messages that guide our lives towards the source, which all beings share as their departing point and final destination.

Martina Hoffmann‘s work has been published in such books as ‘The Visionary World of Hansruedi Giger‘ by Stanislav Grof, ‘Albert Hofmann Und Sein LSD’ by Dieter Hagenbach, AT Verlag, ‘Be The Change’ by Ed and Deb Shapiro (Sterlibg Publishing), ‘Inner Paths To Outer Space’ (Park Street Press 2008), Metamorphosis (BeinArt Publishing 2007), ‘True Visions’ (Betty Books 2006), ‘Drinking Lightning’ (Fine Arts Press 2001), ‘Illuminatus’, (Fine Arts Press1999), ‘One Source, Sacred Journeys’ (Markowitz Publishers 1997), ‘The Return Of The Great Goddess’ (Shambhala Publishing 2001 and Noospheres (Pomegranate 1991).

Martina Hoffmann currently has her primary studio in Colordao, USA. She has exhibited her work worldwide since 1985.
