This work derives from a personal photo. The weathered house has been enlivened with tints of purple and blue, which then contrasts with the warm hues of the surroundings, especially the foreground. The pattern of leaves becomes a space where reds, oranges, golds, and greens compete for attention on a dark brown background. Consider this work an updated piece of the past. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and it comes wired and ready to hang.

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.
