“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
Fans of impressionist paintings will be delighted to view Michael Flohr art at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. The artist is recognized for his paintings that demonstrate the vigor and tranquility of unfamiliar and recognizable places from around the world.
In Perfect Martini, Flohr paints the delicate outline of a glass illuminated by soft lighting. A trio of olives sits in the clear cocktail while two others lie on the counter. The artist relies on bold hues and agile brushstrokes to capture the upbeat vibe of this place — Flohr’s signature way of conveying how a long day deserves a round of drinks in the company of friends.
Flohr creates a relaxed atmosphere through dense layers and loose flicks of paint. The highly pigmented oil paints settle across the canvas in varying intensities, resulting in a lovely tactile effect. Perfect Martini will look right at home in a bar, lounge, restaurant, hotel, receiving area, or loft.
