“I love oil paint because of its durability and the richness it brings to the canvas. I also believe that most people with an appreciation for art respect an artist’s use of this classic medium.” – Michael Flohr
When visitors come by the Marcus Ashley Gallery, they find themselves transfixed by the collections on display. The patrons equally celebrate and revere the works of local and international artists. Tourists and locals spend hours viewing the gallery’s exhibits and learning about emerging and famous talent. Interested buyers and curious folks will find the Michael Flohr art a fascinating collection to explore.
The artist assuages our appetite for color, intrigue, and stimulating brushwork in Rendezvous. Flohr’s wife Melissa is instantly recognizable in her crimson dress and classic cloche hat. She sits by the bar enjoying a martini, the local bartender keeping her company. The quiet, vacant bar provides solace from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The bar’s Victorian light fixtures and minimal contemporary interiors marry the old with the new. Rich pastels mix and melt with deep, vibrant tones to recreate this place’s charming aesthetic. Layers of pigment, spontaneous smears, and enthusiastic brushwork make this a Flohr masterpiece. Rendezvous will look right at home in a bar, lounge, restaurant, cafe, or hotel room.
