The flamboyant artwork of contemporary artist Michael Flohr continues to entertain us with palette, paint and personality. Sustained by improvisation and lyric beauty, Flohr’s work titled, “Mel at the Bar” possesses a dynamic energy and sophisticated complexity that avows, “Play it again, Sam.” Like many a great master inspired by the power of love for a special woman, Flohr has dedicated this painting to his wife, Melissa.
The title of this piece also serves as a double entendre for the artist’s nickname for his muse and the actual name of the bartender at one of he and Melissa’s favorite places to rendezvous. Intentionally stylized with a retro-contemporary flair, Flohr transports the viewer to a different place in time. Color melds like the haunting melody of a Billie Holiday song or the taste of a warm snifter of fine cognac. The backdrop, a frenzy of spontaneous and brilliant color, conveys the spirit of the scene with lyrical intention and colorful execution. A feeling of mystery and impending romance seems to loom in the air.
The woman at the bar is dressed in classic, vintage fashion. This reflects the artist’s infatuation with the unique style embraced by his wife, Melissa, while setting the tone for this timeless work of art. Is this the past or the present? Does it really matter? Ultimately, Michael Flohr succeeds in taking us to a place that whets the appetite for intrigue and quenches our thirst for visual pleasure.
