Travel and adventure are the spice of life and a source of great artistic inspiration for contemporary painter Michael Flohr. His quest for subject matter does not originate from seeking new landscapes, but from seeing landscapes with new eyes. Some may surmise that Michael Flohr paints moments, not places. He is an artist that sees the beauty of the physical world, but ultimately yearns to paint the experience of being in a special place, at a special time.
Michael Flohr’s moment in “Italian Rain” takes place in Italy’s renowned Piazza Navona, which dates back to ancient Rome. The existing square was built in the 15th century on the former Domitian’s stadium, built by emperor Dimitian in the 1st century. With its magnificent fountains and the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone, this square is home to some of the most important baroque sculptural and architectural masterpieces in the world.
For centuries, people from all walks of life have come to this lively square to experience its legacy. Apropos to Flohr’s abstract expressionist style is the emotion he expresses with each stroke of his brush. The colorful reflections from a warm evening rain illuminate his memory, as he recalls how the rain seemed to rejuvenate, not dampen the spirits for all of those who wandered amidst this historically significant place on this enchanted evening.
Michael Flohr’s body of work is testament to the powerful splendor of fulfilling dreams of travel and our desire to take ourselves out of the ordinary to see the extraordinary. Time and again, his art transports us to beautiful moments in intriguing places.
