Inspired by an old black and white photo, this work uses fresh colors and exuberant paint handling to bring the subject matter into the modern space. The clouds echo the shapes of the trees below, and form an effective counterpoint to the flat, choppy surface of the creek. The gallery-wrapped canvas has sides 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.
