Exhibition | Tatiane Hofstadler: Quintessência

Tatiane Silva Hofstadler, a native Brazilian, lived in Austria, India and Japan before moving to Washington, DC in 2011. She started her artistic journey at the Corcoran College of Art and Design where she received her Certificate in Fine Art in 2015.

When I first encountered the work of Tatiane Hofstadler at The Writer's Center in Bethesda, I immediately responded to the aspects of nature that it evoked. But it was nature at its most basic form, the elements: earth, wind, fire and water. Then I visited her studio where I also saw and could feel seasonal qualities in her work. These were "landscapes" that resembled those of spring, summer, fall and winter from her vantage point.

I experienced an unexpected and visceral response to her work that went beyond the elements, beyond the seasons that I could not define. Was this a fifth element, an unidentified season? Or was it something else?  I believe the feelings I had were those of the passion with which the artist imbues the canvas. What I had experienced was the magic of color and texture at its best. I had experienced quintessence.

Prepare to be transported at the exhibit, QUINTESSÊNCIA, where Tatiane Hofstadler shares the spirit, passion and magic of her work at its finest.  At QUINTESSÊNCIA, let her work speak to you in a language only you can hear and comprehend. Let it transport you to a time and place you never knew existed.  Let her work move you in ways you never expected.

Experience QUINTESSÊNCIA, a fifth element, an undiscovered season and catch a glimpse of a world transformed by Tatiane Hofstadler. (Credits: Maritza Rivera, Poet and Publisher, Casa Mariposa Press)
