About Region Study No 02

Canadian artist Peter Hoffer renders paintings in a classical style reminiscent of the famed landscapes of John Constable. A line of trees dominates the pastoral country setting in this piece—the colour palette is muted—a wash of green, grays and black against a pale blue cloudy sky. Known for his romantic landscapes, Hoffer’s treatment of each work on panel and sealed with resin in a high gloss finish is thoroughly modern.

“A landscape is continually evolving. Its topography consists of repetitive gestures of surfacing, resurfacing and erosion. Exposed to the elements, scarred by the wind and shifting soils, the landscape reveals its own narrative.” Peter Hoffer

He holds an MFA. from Concordia University and degrees from the University of Guelph and OCAD University. Hoffer has lived and worked in Toronto, New York City, Paris, Montreal and Berlin. He 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.
