Michael Pfleghaar defines his work by relationships, whether that be between colors, objects and shadows or our relationship with the world around us. Pfleghaar states, "At a basic level, my practice has always centered around documenting my life. Early on I realized how the things we choose to surround ourselves are a reflection of self." While his artistic style has shifted to abstract the inanimate objects around him, this early work focuses on the place in which he was working at the time, downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.
