The Rape – Art Exhibition

A new solo exhibition by Sorrel Hofmann entitled The Rape. This body of work examines the harm inherent in seemingly healing gestures and therapies, ranging from the environmental to the psychological. Consisting of paintings, sculptures, photography and large-scale installation, Hofmann takes seemingly everyday objects and minimalist artistic marks and weaves a complex and highly charged network of connections between them.
