Dianne Hoffman: Lightning Can Sometimes Strike Twice

Dianne Hoffman: Lightning Can Sometimes Strike Twice


Dianne says, "Myths answer timeless questions and serve as a compass to each generation. Legends are told to explain the world and our mortal experience by providing hope, heroes and direction. Unlike fairy tales, each are reflections of our reality. They are warnings and promises, laments as celebrations.

In this series, I have reinvented mythical themes and characters with salvaged, found objects. Much like the legends I have portrayed- these repurposed objects provide a unique perspective into our disposable past and the renewed transformation we are capable of. I have intently depicted a delicate balance between light and dark and the sincerity found in their unified stories.  In this way, my translation of these sacred tales has added another layer of fact to their endlessly relevant, fictitious testimonies.

Legend has it that the Jackalope, rumored to be near extinction, are an aggressive and dangerous hybrid of an antelope and jackrabbit.  The advocated method to catch one is to entice it with whiskey, its beverage of choice. They are said to exclusively mate during lightning storms, explaining the rarity of the species. "
