This extremely stylized landscape results from the compression of normal perspective to an almost flat visual field, in which regular geometric shapes (circles, rectangles, triangles, and large curves) dominate. To keep such a composition unified I used a mostly warm palette, except for the final tree painted, giving the work its title.

The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas 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.
