Biography Jolyon Hofsted
Working from his studio in Bearsville, New York, Jolyon Hofsted creates vessel-like sculptures intended to be social commentaries on many social issues including war, politics, sex and drugs. He uses a variety of materials including cigarette butts, wood, paper, plastic, sand, fur, cast aluminum, etc. In the 1990s, he did a bronze series and in early 2000 began working with bamboo, which he found fascinating for manipulation into a variety of forms. Of working with bamboo, he said: "My goal was to be simple, elegant and natural, like the material."
His sources of the bamboo are a bamboo garden owned by a friend named Steve Ray, a bamboo garden of his own in Woodstock, New York and a bamboo plantation in Alabama.
