The composition in this piece is based on a series of intersecting arcs –— the bridge, the shoreline below, the large tree trunk at the left, and the branches that emerge from the top left corner. The paint is applied thickly, and with mostly wide brushes, allowing each color relationship to be evident, as well as creating an almost sculptural quality. 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.
