About

"Bayou in Blue & Gold" by Max Flandorfer (American, b. 1962). Presented in a giltwood frame. Signed "Max Flandorfer" lower left. Titled "Bayou in Blue & Gold," dated "2015" and signed on verso. Image: 12"H x 16"W. Primarily a plein air painter, Max is an avid outdoorsman and is always seeking to capture the spiritual and humble quality of nature. His work evokes a restful, contemplative stillness that he seeks, both in life and his art. Growing up in Miami, he spent most weekends and summers outdoors in the Everglades, or on the water soaking up the rich color, and beauty of the tropical landscape. Flandorfer lived in California for over 20 years, and currently resides in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Mostly self-taught, Max was forever drawing and sketching as a kid, but the beautiful landscape, and rich artistic heritage of the Monterey peninsula's artist colony was the deciding influence on his later works. An illustration instructor, Jane Miller of Monterey Peninsula College encouraged him to study early California greats such as Granville Redmond, and Guiseppe Cadennaso whereby they helped to influence his early pallete and style. Although his current work is uniquely his own, he owes a debt to the early pioneers of California impressionism. With so much of that landscape quickly disappearing, he tries to capture the spiritual beauty and glimpse of paradise we all seek in our lives. Exhibitions: Student /faculty show- Monterey Peninsula College Ohr O'Keeffe Museum of Art - Juried Gulf States Competition 2006. He is a member of the California Art Club (Painting patron)
