Judy Hoffman is a visual artist living and working in Brooklyn. Her installations, sculpture, and artist books explore themes of birth, decay, waste, and regeneration.
Combining disparate elements of industrial refuse, natural debris, ceramics, and handmade paper, she constructs microcosms, ecosystems, and other natural formations. Her site-specific installation venues in NYC and Europe include Wave Hill, Ceres Gallery, Central Booking, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, Nutureart, and the Frauen Museum and Kunstler Forum in Bonn, Germany. Hoffman’s artist books, sculpted from handmade paper and clay, are included in the special collections at Yale University, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Alan Chasnanoff Bookworks Collection, among others. She has been a teaching artist for over 17 years.
