Michael Toenges Biography

For Michael Toenges (born 1952 Pfaffenhofen/Ilm, lives in Cologne) paint is an actual material with volume and density. His brush and spatula leave furrows, valleys, and ridges, and yet: despite the heaviness of the paint materials, the beholder gets a sense of a flying, floating dynamics. The massive brushstrokes reveal verve and energy, they strive towards the edge, they want to go beyond the painting, and the colours are light. Heavy does not have to be heavy.
