Mike Hoffman
holds a BFA from Oklahoma State University. Compelled by mysterious, non-monetary forces, he spends most of his time holed up inan Oklahoma farmhouse making images on and out of re-purposed materials like barn wood and landscape paintings found at thrift stores. His images are largely figural and from the... past, including a good deal of “junk cultural” references (movies, popular music, sports, burlesque, true crime magazines, etc.) as well as more “legitimate” or historical ones (it’s a fine distinction). His media vary from painting to
small-scale sculpture to tramp art carving.
