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
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
