The intuitive improvisational approach to emerging artist Michael Flohr’s painting is the driving force behind the creation of a fresh collection of traditional imagery with a bold, contemporary attitude. Regardless of the visual appeal of his work, Flohr is compelled to be a storyteller. Stories born of unspoken interactions and visual clues brought to life by the artist’s ability to twist convention and impulsively defy aesthetic boundaries with paint and palette knife.
The story of “Red Dress” was born on a hazy morning at a café in San Francisco. Captivated by a striking woman wearing a red dress, Flohr paints her essence amidst the backdrop of foggy morning light emanating through the windows of the café’s vintage interior. The bold color of the woman’s dress is restrained, yet conspicuous enough to define the artist’s intention and create a unique focal point for this work.
Characterized by a style submerged in his stream of consciousness, Flohr’s masterful use of rich color and haunting light creates the hypnotic aura for this composition. Through the process of abstraction, the subsequent blurring together of figures and environment coalesce into a rhythmic vision of intrigue and seduction.
