This work is an experiment in color, since it began with a fairly ordinary image of bare trees and rocks. Each area of sunlight or shadow is then translated into vivid color, creating endless opportunities for contrast and interesting tonal relationships. Find something new every time you look at it! The gallery wrapped sides are painted brown, and it arrives 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.
