About

Karl Martin Holzhäuser (German, b. 1944) 87.9, 1987 Two Prints, Colored Light on PE-color paper 24” x 20" (60 x 50 cm) each element 47 1/4" x 19 3/4” (120 x 50 cm) overall Unique Holzhäuser's "paintings with light" align themselves with the tenets of Concrete Photography as nonobjective pictorial worlds, devoid of any intentional reference to figuration or reality. Wielding "the light rake" ("Lichtrakel"), a light-emitting tool of his own fabrication, the artist exposes sensitized chromogenic photographic papers to light bands of varying color and width, building abstractions from a predetermined series of gestures. Holzhäuser works in total darkness without the benefit of seeing what has been exposed until after the picture is developed, making visible the gridded patterns or organic shapes mapped or memorized by the artist in advance.
