RAILROAD BRIDGE, THURMONT, 22″ x 24″, Acrylic on canvas, $775

A master of bold, unapologetic color, Robert Hofherr paints landscapes that transcend reality. Inspired by Van Gogh and Fauvism, his paintings come alive with thick, swirling dimensional brushstrokes that take on a vibrant life of their own. Fields, trees, water, and sky become rich, playful mosaics splashed and saturated with blazing, dappled colors.

As a painter, I strive to transform images of the physical world into unique and compelling visual explorations. I don’t adhere to any preconception of a realistic rendering. The world is full of color, in all times and seasons, and I seek to amplify it for maximum impact. I try to use the very application of the paint itself to express emotion. In an age of increasingly intrusive technology, painting done by hand reaffirms our humanity.

My primary artistic influences are the early 2Oth century French Fauve painters, especially Maurice de Vlaminck and Andre Derain. Other role models include George Bellows, Wolf Kahn, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, John Constable, Raoul Dufy, Grace Hartigan, and Henry Finkelstein.”
