The exhibition title "Pharos," taken from the 2012 piece, means both milestone and beacon. Hofshi’s work has long conveyed the notion of passage—both in the historical sense but also humanity’s individual renewal. Hofshi’s massive prints render agitated landscapes in black, ocres and shades of grey—the terrain alternately wild and marked by man’s imprint. Often depicting her native Israel, the plains and ruins are haunted by history, suggesting nostalgia, despair and meditation. The arid lands, symbolic and ordinary for every Israeli are reconfigured through Hofshi’s intense study of artists such as Albrecht Durer, Kathe Kollwitz and Anselm Kiefer.
