Michael Flohr and his wife Mel stumbled upon the casual hangout while walking in the Atlanta neighborhood known as the “Virginia Highlands”. discovering the unexpected and placing it upon the canvas as a favorite pastime and the motivating force behind the creative inspiration of Michael Flohr’s art. “Fontaine’s” He describes as a Pearl just waiting to be captured.
A popular local haunt, Fontaine’s Oyster Bar is a great place for a cold beer, fresh shucked oysters and their favorite, “steam house lobster bisque”. Flohr in keeping with what he refers to as “research” ordered a cold one and another great masterpiece was conceived.
Capturing what Flohr describes as a welcoming beacon he uses color and light to play up on the glowing neon sign. By skillfully managing the complex interchange between the artistic strategy and compositional arrangement, Flohr in his creative genius finds the middle ground between abstractions and representation. As a master of illumination, he uses pattern and color to suggest another wonderful evening out by the gesture of the social interaction between the couples walking in the distance.
