Opening Reception: 1 - 4pm Peter Hoffer in attendance
Newzones Gallery of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the opening of our first solo exhibition of new paintings by Peter Hoffer.
Peter Hoffer’s approach to landscape painting involves the application of oil paint on wood panel, canvas or a combination of both. When Hoffer incorporates canvas into his paintings the surfaces are rough and torn, the landscape is both constructed and deconstructed simultaneously, the viewer is invited to take part in the construction of landscape and painting. To these varied surfaces Hoffer then applies a thick layer of resin over the entire painting, creating a glass like surface. This not only furthers Hoffer’s dichotomies but allows for a reflective surface that shows the viewer in the fictitious scene.
Peter Hoffer has a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Concordia University Montréal, Québec. Hoffer’s paintings can be found in several prominent public, private, and corporate collections.
