About Young Linden

Peter Hoffer’s series of tree ‘portraits’ are stunning contemporary landscapes—each one uniquely distinctive. This image of a linden tree standing center stage is captured at the height of its glory—full dark green foliage. Lindens are very attractive to bees so they are an important source of honey. Hoffer’s tree is somewhat romanticized as it is solitary in a field of green set against a turquoise and rosy, pink sky.The glossy resin finish makes this piece thoroughly modern.

“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

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.
