Irene Hoff and ‘Innertotem’
The Innertotem movement reflects Irene Hoff’s desire to encourage connection, community and care, and is aimed at restoring a sense of balance through visual art. Some pieces contain typography, whilst others are centred around image. The driving force to this collection is the push to reawaken the female consciousness.
Irene’s series, Innerscape showcases a collection of acrylic and mixed media portraits. Each of her subjects are women with colourful headpieces that symbolise their inner worlds. Characterised by floral patterns, refined detail and side profiles, Innerscape presents a deeper look at the human mind. Irene’s light and delicate palette makes for a series of paintings that are instantly captivating and subtly meditative. Magical Connection is another recent series by Irene, focused around animals and the power of the imagination.
