Item Details

An original melted oil pastel painting on aluminum by contemporary Cincinnati artist and inventor Tom Lohre, titled, Queen City Building I. The image depicts an abstracted interpretation of the signature Cincinnati skyscraper and other buildings downtown, rendered in loud Post-Impressionistic colors. Artist signature is hand-signed in red to the lower right. The painting is mounted in a decorative beveled wood frame with a bright gold leaf finish. Additional information about the artist is attached to the verso, along with a hanging wire. Lohre’s “blob” paintings are created by melting 175 carefully selected colors of oil pastels onto a heated aluminum surface; their execution guided by a pixelated photograph in a manner similar to that which is carried out by the painting machine invented by Lohre using Lego’s Mindstorm Invention System in 2003. This method of painting claims to make the most of the least. Lohre attests to be the first to have ever painted a spaceship from life; he also painted the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens from life. More information about the artist can be found at his website, located below under Additional Information.
