"Based on a personal photo, this work benefits from a restructuring which enlarges the barn and reduces the size and importance of the road in the composition," explains Robert of this expressionist evening scene. "The paint was applied thickly and with only minimal detail, and the trees and other elements on the sides were distorted to further direct the viewer's eye to the center of the piece. Other than the light in the sky, most of the hues were reduced in intensity to suggest the day's end."

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.
