The ornate architecture surrounding the central space becomes the surface on which I investigate Fauvist-inspired tonal relationships. The paint is applied thickly and with energy, and unnecessary detail is avoided in favor of spontaneous execution. This is a statement piece which may conjure up journeys taken or inspire those yet to come. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas 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.
