From tangled foreground foliage of rust and green emerges a lone tree against a horizon lit by yellow in this acrylic painting on board by Peter HOffer. A bright strip of kelly green at the horizon hints at the peaceful transition of nature from night to day or day to night. 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.
