This expressionist interior is an example of distilling the original source (a photo) into an interlocking series of colored shapes, as though one were doing a jigsaw puzzle by creating each piece as it is needed. Certain representative elements are recognizable, but overall there is very little in the way of descriptive, realistic detail. This allows the color and spatial relationships to remain of paramount importance. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas 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.
