Artist Ruan Hoffmann's work is unabashedly personal; he has likened his ceramic work to diary entries. Part of his 'Entrapercevoir' series, the 'Much Love Me' collection [I'm tempted to call it a 'chapter'] mixes pictorial pieces with tiles painted with phrases; a provocative verbal complement to his haunting visual story. Images on the 12x12 limestone squares are lithographed, and each of the twenty tiles in the group is offered in a limited edition of 100. cletile.com
