Heavy Light

2023                                                                                                                     soloshow, RaumLinksRechts, Hamburg                           

In HEAVY LIGHT, Toni Ehrhardt lifts the phenomenon of light in various manifestations to a formal subject.
In doing so, he follows the trail of partly consciously set, partly affectively appearing light sources from past works, such as burning flying objects borrowed from Dragonball Z or the constantly baby-blue sky in his oil pastels.                                                                 In the material confrontation, the determined human view of temporality and mass also comes into focus.
For something as seemingly formless as light, the artist imagines materialities and channels them through a pop-cultural filter.
