About Birch (Berlin Series)

This dynamic contemporary composition is by Peter Hoffer known for his superb landscapes. This mixed media work signals a departure from the more traditional paintings—a uniquely modern portrait of a single bare birch tree rendered in golden yellow. The backdrop is a tapestry of abstracted flora rendered in expressive brushstrokes in green, brown, yellow and indigo with pops of bright colours in lime green, orange, pink and blue. A deep blue, cloudy sky frames the top of the work.

"You start seeing… the blobs of paint and the drips and to me that's what is communicating the true landscape, the layers. That's what's interesting, the layers." Peter Hoffer
