Artist statement excerpt
Esther Hoflick uses her practice to explore re-enchantment and what it means, on a phenomenological level, to be human. Her artistic investigations throughout her MFA have focused on perception and her relationship to the physical world. Her interest in perception is related also to her interest in the relationship between nonsense and meaning. Significantly, for the artist, these relationships are seen as a continuum, as opposed to a bifurcation. She wonders about our perceptions as enmeshed within our environment and where, on that continuum, meaning resides.
Biography
Moving from a cottage community just outside of Peterborough, Ontario, Esther Hoflick completed her B.A. Honours in Studio Arts from the University of Guelph in 2007, with a minor in English Literature. In 2012, the artist moved to Montreal where she lived and worked until she started her Master of Fine Arts degree, at the University of Ottawa, in 2017.
Hoflick was the co-founder of Night Owl Contemporary, a gallery for emerging artists in Montreal, and ran The Living Art Room, a small community-based art school. She worked as curator for Artbomb, a daily auction of Canadian art, and received a grant from the Québec Jeunes volontaires program, in 2014. She has worked as a studio assistant for Peter Barron, in Peterborough, Don Russell, in Guelph, and John Brown, in Toronto. Her work has been exhibited at Artspace, in Peterborough, the Art Gallery of Guelph, Espace Projet, in Montreal, Galerie UQO, in Gatineau, QC, and Artfetch, in Dublin, Ireland, among others.
