About Tree Portrait 20205

A single tree in full leafy green foliage stands against the pretty pastel colours of a morning sky—pale blue and pink in this tree portrait by Peter Hoffer. This is one in a series of 12 atmospheric landscapes of deciduous trees—each one displaying its unique shape and personality. Hoffer uses thickly applied layers of resin randomly scratched and marked to emulate the natural weathering of trees.

“Exposed to the elements, scarred by the wind and shifting soils, the landscape reveals its own narrative.” Peter Hoffer

He obtained an MFA from Concordia University and additional degrees from the University of Guelph and OCAD University. 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.
