A lone tree is framed by gold sky in this emotive landscape by Peter Hoffer. Hoffer’s trompe l’oeil and scumbling techniques are reminiscent of those of British landscape painter John Constable. The work is finished with a layer of resin and evokes nostalgia for romantic forms and periods.
Peter Hoffer is a landscape painter, working with traditional varnishing techniques popularized in the 19th century. He particularly addresses artists’ practice of using a high-gloss finish to maintain the appearance of being newly completed. His images feature nondescript views of landscapes, to which he applies many coats of reflective varnishes, sometimes between layers of paint. Over time, the surface shows natural inconsistencies such as discoloration and cracks. Hoffer exaggerates this effect by marking, etching, scratching, and searing the varnished layers, such that they becomes rough “like the terrain itself.”
