This campus rendering uses bold colors and expressive paint handling to transform the everyday subject matter into something unusual. Even the normal perspective has been altered to focus attention on the seated figure in the center. The sky has been filled with a circular texture in order to become an adequate counterweight to the bright, textured surface below. The gallery wrapped edges are painted a complementary 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.
