Why not box it in, so you can't see it and then decorate it to match in with walls.
I know here in Australia you can buy the kits to change which way the vents go. You can but one that goes up the back and out the top so the machine is closer to the wall.
I found this for you:
Hi Rick, those hoses are usually just zip tied on at either end. If its shortening it that you want to do those hoses can also very easily be cut down so you can get the dryer closer to the wall if you like.
I have heard about magnetic connections available for dryer hoses. Don't know where they are available. Replacement dryer vent hoses are available at all home improvement stores. The best ones are the metal ones as compared to the cheap plastic ones. Hose clamps can be used to hold on each end. I would get a metal elbow for the dryer end and then a hose to the wall. The rule of thumb is 1) as short as possible and 2) minimal bends - no kinks.
You can cut the hose down. But remember when you want to move the dryer to clean behind it, the hose will come off if it is too short. The hose does bend, and you can push your dryer to the back wall within the width of the hose, that is how I have mine, So like a 5 inch space.

The hose is flexible and bendable. It would be a little easier to bend it as close as you want it before attaching it. Probably an "S" would work for you. Once it's attached it will bend with the shape as you move the dryer in position without kinking.
Perhaps installing a dryer box may improve the situation.?(picture below)
Here are two links showing what others did to move the dryer closer.
If. You move the dryer closer to the wall the vent will be next to the opening but that looks tricky to fit in there if you touch it you won’t be able to put it back
that’s why there is a big hose so they could ata h the hose and then push the machine back in place
Hi! Maybe something like this would work?
Hi Rick, hope this helps you out,
Thank you got it!!!
