This work is a Fauvist take on a simple country church and surroundings. The paint is thick, the colors bright, and the detail minimum. Normal perspective has been altered so that the road and island to the left can become large sweeping curves for the benefit of the overall composition. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished brown edges. It comes 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.
