Using photos he takes of flowers, plants and natural textures, as well as animals and people, award-winning artist John Koehler manipulates the layers digitally with color shifts and radical filtration to create abstracted images with amazing and unusual colors and designs.

Introducing the Botanicals, along with other work done since 2018, ranging from surrealism to painterly.

Available at the following galleries: Red Fish Gallery in Irvington Virginia, Gallerie Ukwensi in Norfolk, Virginia, and 21st Street Art Gallery in Virginia Beach.
