I pass by this farm often, and was intrigued by the variety of shapes and sizes of structures present on the site. The bright sun creates bold colors and strong areas of light and shadow in the work. Too much detail is avoided in favor of energetic paint handling. Think of this as a piece of Americana updated for the 21st century. 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.
