Item description for Andreas Hofer by Roberto Ohrt Helmut Draxler...
If Goya had collaborated with Lichtenstein, it may have resulted in something like the dark Pop visions of Andreas Hofer. He draws on film, comics, fairy tales, myths, and religion for his monstrous figures in nightmarish settings. Dripping with paint, the Justice League series places superheroes in a peril their powers seem unable to overcome: Batman and Wonder Woman in Dying Stars morph into trees, their arms sprouting branches and their legs roots, while a shadowy pterodactyl hovers in the background. In other works, Hofer shows he's not without black humor in appropriating iconic material, as when he has Malevich's Black Square sprout vampire teeth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Andreas Hofer?
Fantastic Jun 8, 2007
There is something to be said for artwork that keeps you coming back for more. I was initially unsure about Andreas Hofer's work because of its raw nature (splashes of colour, distressed canvases and rough collages) but this is what gives it its appeal. The mix of pop imagery and expressionist painting is beautifully executed while carrying with it a sense of melancholia (often accented with humour). The layout, images and writing in this hardcover volume are all of a very high standard.
