Erhard Post

Erhard Post’s powerful drawings enable the viewer to engage with the artist’s world, his life and thoughts. Human figures, animal representations, other creatures and self-portraits reveal things experienced and perceived. His figures are expressed in bright oil pastels, setting them with high-contrast and flat on the often colored paper. He composes them with an eloquent color choice. The result is strong figures with colored faces, defensive character heads, life-affirming. They fill his paintings as impressive (human) beings and stare the viewer straight-on. In portraits or in dynamically composed smaller group formations of 3-5 figures, Erhard Post’s paintings explain how he perceives himself and the world. Born in 1955, the artist has been working since 2013 in the Art Workshop of the Day Center of the Albert Schweitzer Stiftung – Wohen & Betreuen.
