Review of art exhibition

Written on 2nd April 2015 by Hoffmann Staff

 

 

 

The Arts and Craft Studios of the Hoffmann Foundation have just held a retrospective exhibition of art work by people with Autism at the Gallery of the Hornsey Library.

 

 The main purpose of the exhibition was to give the artists concerned an opportunity to display works that express, artistically, their view on the impact of Autism in their lives, and it has to be said that the breadth of expression in the paintings and ceramics here was amazing.

 

 As always with work that comes from these Studios, one does not have to look too hard to see the sheer effort, concentration and artistic ability that’s invested in its creation. Nor is one at a loss to find a response to the challenge of living with Autism.

 

The impact of Autism on people’s lives and mentality varies greatly with the individual and the variation is ably expressed in this exhibition. Through the work on display, we are taken from negative frustration to optimistic positivity, and more on to a ‘Just see if I care’ attitude towards life in general.   

 

 When viewing this work, one is faced with the question; without art, where would these young people turn for means of expression? The other question is, of course, when are we going to see another wonderful exhibition like this from the Hoffmann Foundation Studios?
