About Sergeant

Peter Hoffer’s elegant series of tree ‘portraits’ are modern landscapes. In this piece, one deciduous tree takes center frame, standing in a field dressed in full rich green foliage. Set against a lovely sky of soft pinks and turquoise, Hoffer bows a bit to the romantic tradition of landscape artists such as John Constable. The thick resin coat gives this piece a glossy sheen and makes it thoroughly contemporary.

“I wanted to do the landscape in a manner in which it is personified. Where the tree becomes the individual, even playing on some clichés." Peter Hoffer
