Part of a local marina, this cluster of buildings sits on a creek which empties into the Susquehanna River just opposite a two-lane road. The focus of the composition is the center, where a collection of structures, boats, and equipment seem to be framed by the surrounding trees and hills. Color exists in the entire work, including the highlights and the shadows. The heavily textured underpainting adds another level of structure to the piece. The sides are brown, and it comes ready to hang.

The surface of my works is textured, partly from the way in which I prepare the surface, and partly due to the style of painting, with thick paint applied with energy. This is deliberate, as I want to create works in which the "hand of the artist" is evident. Soft lighting is important when hanging, enhancing the color and energy, and minimizing the surface texture.

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.
