"Inspired by some of Andre Derain's more compelling works, this image flattens normal space and perspective by creating patterns of bright, flat color," explains Robert. "Detail is subordinated to maintain the overall stylized quality and visual uniformity of the piece. The rendering of the objects is also kept deliberately loose and almost primitive." The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas 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.
