Peter HofferHoffer

Peter Hoffer was born in Brantford, Ontario, Canada in 1965 and is a Visual Artist specializing in painting.
He holds degrees from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto,
University of Guelph Ontario, and a Masters degree in Sculpture here in Montreal.
Many of his public works are exhibited and collected by Museums such as the
Musee des Baux Arts in Quebec.

The surfaces of Peter Hoffer’s landscape and abstract paintings are coated with a highly reflective resin varnish. This material was chosen as a means to create tension between a painted surface and refined encapsulation. This packaging of the “objet d’art “ stills a moment in space and time and eludes to an item of value, not unlike religious reliquary
