Song Bird by Brandi Hofer

The repetition of the female portrait was to represent women as a whole, women coming into themselves, a reflection of life and self-discovery: this is what I wanted the portraits to portray. So it was a repetition of an image but each represented a different moment in time. That is why I refer to myself as somewhat of an expressionist — so much of my work depends on my mood and a moment in time. The purpose of the repetition is that I feel no frustration on perfecting a likeness — repeating it allows me to concentrate more on the use of media and expressing myself.  And the way individual female viewers connect to the piece makes it a painting of them, a reflection of their “self”.  – Brandi Hofer*
