Shaken Not Stirred
Intentionally stylized with retro contemporary flair, “Shaken not Stirred” transports the viewer to a different place in time. Colors melt like the haunting melody of a Billy Holliday song or the taste of a warm snifter of the cognac. The backdrop filled with spontaneous and brilliant color, conveys the spirit of the scene as a feeling of mystery and impeding romance looms in the air. The lady orders her favourite libation a martini “shaken, not stirred”. Is she alone or a lady in waiting? 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.
