Historical Context:
Modern design, architecture, botanicals, and interiors inspire local Grand Rapids artist Michael Pfleghaar’s colorful representational and abstract paintings and drawings. Simple, clean lines, balance, and organic materials are characteristics of modernism that can be found within his work. His artwork centers around documenting his life and reflecting on how what we choose to surround ourselves with is a reflection of the self. While his early work depicts scenes of representational still lives and interior subjects, recently Pfleghaar has turned to completely abstracted images, focusing more on composition and color.
