For Asia-based Dutch artist Irene Hoff, the world is out of balance, which is evidenced by both the human and environmental challenges we are currently faced with. Irene’s aim is to encourage and support humanity in reclaiming their sovereignty, in overcoming limiting beliefs, and in discovering their personal talents – always with the intention of moving people towards a more passionate and carefree, lighthearted life.
To read more about Irene and her adventures:
Irene is internationally recognized for her colorful mixed media art collage style. One of her favorite muses is female figures, where faces are partly hidden behind a patchwork of hand-torn paper and paint. To Irene, this symbolizes how limited our view of ourselves and our lives is, while also showing the potential of becoming aware and free, by going within. Through facing our limiting beliefs and shifting them to align with what we want to achieve, can life begin to flow more naturally, guide us, and support us in embracing our immense universal potential.
MAGIC IN THE HOUSE
Another of Irene’s favored inspiration are animals, often portraited in settings that defy all logic. Irene believes that each one of us is a magical being and encourages us to reactivate some of the skills we had as children but seemed to have lost along the way of growing up; to daydream, to question, to fantasize, to play, to explore, and to believe that you can be anything you want, anything!
ORIGINALS & PRINTS
Next to Irene’s original art pieces on canvas, Irene also sells limited edition paper prints. They are beautiful reproductions of the original canvas, embellished and handcrafted with layers of paint and patterns, which makes each one of them a unique piece. All prints are signed and numbered by Irene, and come in various sizes.
Among her achievements, Irene is proud to have had one of her wildlife paintings signed by nature warrior and actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Irene subsequently donated this canvas to a project raising funds to protect Asia’s Wildlife in 2016. More recently, she was published in ‘100 Artists of the Future’ – A Collector’s Edition, curated by The Contemporary Art Curator Magazine in 2019-2020. She has had many exhibitions around the world. Among her most successful art shows, were the silent observers of the world in 2018 and 2019, at Deus Ex Machina in Bali. Irene has received several awards and was recently nominated in London for the ‘Rise Art Prize’. Go to Press to check out what others write about Irene.
A Message From Irene
‘To me, art bridges our inner source of wisdom with the outer world in which we live. My paintings are more than visual creations; they are a means of conveying energy and insights by triggering positive thoughts and allowing life’s magical flow’
