An abstract mixed media collage painting "Veneer Chair" with spray paint, stain, silk screened veneer on board. It is coated in a thick layer of resin Inspired by mid century furniture, design and objects, these paintings capture the spirit of modernism in an original manner.

Wired and ready for hanging, no need for framing.  The painting is 2" deep and the sides are stained.

Pfleghaar received his MFA in visual arts from the Lesley University College of Art and Design in Boston, MA. 

“The threads that tie my paintings together are the compositional relationships of figure to ground. Mid-century modern decorative objects such as chairs and vases provide the beginning of my intuitive process of image making. While based in material references, the paintings depart from reality through the abstraction and reduction of the elements to a visually rich state beyond recognition.”

During his career, Michael Pfleghaar has received numerous awards and honors for his work, both nationally and regionally. In addition to his artwork being featured in Studio Visit, Metropolitan Home, Solace, and American Craft Magazines, Pfleghaar’s pieces are in the permanent art collections including the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, Steelcase Inc., Neiman Marcus, Herman Miller and the State of Michigan Governor’s Residence.

Michael Pfleghaar is an artist residing and working in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He earned his MFA in visual arts from Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 2011. Pfleghaar often portrays botanicals and still lifes, infusing them with abstract elements and flattened space to generate new perspectives. His compositions reflect influences from mid-century modern design, evident in the clean lines, balance, and use of organic materials. In 2023, Pfleghaar was chosen as one of four artists to have their work permanently installed as terrazzo floor designs at the Gerald R Ford International Airport. He also received The Best of Show in the 2021 Festival of the Arts and the West Michigan Area Show at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in Kalamazoo in 2020. Pfleghaar's artwork has been featured in Architectural Digest, Arcadia Magazine, Studio Visit, Metropolitan Home, Solace, and American Craft. Organizations such as the Gilmore Piano Festival 2024, Apple, HBO, CBS, ForeSee, Hayworth, and Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts have utilized his artwork as illustrations. In 2016, Pfleghaar attended the Spread Art Artists Residency in Detroit, MI, and in 2013, he was honored with the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Ox-Bow School and Artists Residency in Saugatuck, MI. His work was part of the 2012 LGBTQ exhibition ReMix: Revisiting Appropriation, curated by Jonathan Katz in San Francisco, CA. Pfleghaar's original artworks are included in permanent collections, such as the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, Steelcase Inc., Herman Miller, the State of Michigan, and Grand Valley State University.
