This interior study draws its inspiration from sources as diverse as Fauvism, Picasso, and Matisse. The palette is upbeat, and the space and the objects within have been distorted to achieve visual impact. Detail has been avoided in lieu of shapes of color. Scale as well has been altered, so that it appears that the scene is viewed from various viewpoints simultaneously. Essentially this is remaking reality to suit the needs of the work. 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.
