Une femme en noir, au premier plan regarde le spectateur à travers des éclats de verre. A ses côtés se tient une poule, munie de tiroirs dont l'un est ouvert et contient des oeufs.

About Dominique Hoffer

A former aviatrix, Dominique Hoffer is a self-taught painter who was born in Geneva in 1951.

Aviation and painting

Dominique Hoffer’s principal driving force is freedom.  This freedom is something that she has found in both aviation and art.  She was unruly child with a head full of ideas of escape which led to her frequently being in trouble at school.  In her notebooks she draws copies of illustrations from story books and copies of the great masters of classical art such as Jean-Baptiste Chardin to name just one. However, she chose aviation first which she practiced for 20 years before giving herself up fully to her artwork as of 1988.  Her years of flying enabled her to visit a wide variety of countries which would inspire her later on in her paintings.
