A strip of flat, green summer landscape that stretches out into an atmospheric distance is anchored by a central tree in this elegant painting by Peter Hoffer. The tree rises into a broad bright sky filled with diffuse and misty clouds in this classically balanced composition. The artist's skilled rendering reminiscent of the landscapes of Lorraine or Constable is also scarified then finished with a layer of resin, a practice of the 18th and 19th Parisien Salons. Not tied to place or time, the painting that is now more object d'art than mimetic landscape evokes nostalgia for classical, romantic forms and periods. Peter Hoffer (b. Brantford, ON 1965) holds a MFA. from Concordia University and degrees from the University of Guelph and the Ontario College of Art. He has lived and worked in Toronto, New York City, Paris and now divides his time between Montreal and Berlin. Hoffer has exhibited widely at art fairs in Basel, Toronto, New York, Stockholm, London, Milan, Amsterdam and Hong Kong. His paintings are held in many private, corporate and public collections including the Musèe des Beaux Arts, the Musèe du Quèbec and the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery.
