This marsh rendering centers on two basic color families - teal, blue, violet/purple and gold, orange, green, brown. The surface is made up of long diagonal strokes of color, which suggest the long marsh grasses and are then picked up in the water and sky to create visual continuity. Extraneous detail is not included to allow the color and paint handling to remain the primary focus of the piece. 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.
