This untidy collection of buildings which I pass by often becomes something altogether different when treated to bold colors and expressive paint handling. I was interested in transforming the "ordinary/everyday" into a compelling visual, and in doing so awakening people to the possibilities of their surroundings, no matter where they reside. This could also be seen as a way to take typical small town imagery and aggressively update it. The sides are painted brown, and it comes ready to hang.

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.
