This study of a village in northern England uses the technique of similarly shaped and angled brushstrokes to create a sense of visual uniformity. This allows a high degree of freedom in the selection and use of colors. The result is a work which provides very different viewing experiences when seen as a whole compared to when viewed closely. Its size ensures a powerful visual statement. The sides are painted brown.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Hofherr avoids depicting a landscape exactly as he sees it or as the viewer might expect. Instead, he enjoys reimagining landscapes and painting his pieces indoors at a fairly rapid pace. The works of French Fauve artists Maurice de Vlaminck and André Derain initially got him interested in painting, and also influenced his decision to not use grey in his works. During his free time he enjoys spending time with his kids, walking his dogs and taking road trips to out-of-way places in the mid-Atlantic region. He currently lives in Maryland.
