Notes from the Interior : A Guide for Romantics
Michael Marefka returns to Mahall's to debut a new collection, Notes from the Interior: A Guide for Romantics.

The work draws heavily from Fauvism, Les Nabis, and German Expressionism.

Through the use of vibrant colors and gestural brushstrokes, Marefka seeks to create pictures that emphasize atmosphere, mood, and feeling. His work invites the viewer to sit down with the painted subjects, to have a drink, engage in conversation, or simply pass the time. It is in interiors such as bedrooms and kitchens where we spend most of our lives. Marefka highlights these spaces and the moments we spend in them, illuminating seemingly mundane situations with romanticism. Notes from the Interior: A Guide for Romantics, is meant to be a kind of celebration, a personal survey of the internal landscapes of all those who value the sublime.

The decorated, contemporary Cleveland based photographer, Ali Scarpulla, will be curating floral arrangements for the show
