This work is about color, light and shadow. The buildings and lawn are merely the surface on which the color relationships exist. The short, choppy brushstrokes over most of the canvas give some visual uniformity to the piece, as well as adding multiple layers of color. The lack of much detail helps contribute to the stark, graphic quality. The gallery wrapped edges are painted a complementary 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.
