About the work

We see rhythmic fields, a gliding and leaping between graduated shades of blue. Nothing representational is depicted, instead something more like memories of that seen.Thus, for example, we recognise pasture structures, cacti, grass in his garden. Heinz Mack is very much aware that parallels with forms in nature can now and then be found in his work. He traces this back to his admiration and his deep interest in nature, which he does not wish to deny. “Nature is not my enemy”, the artist believes.Many of his works are at home in the form and colour worlds of nature and often refer to his environment on Ibiza. Heinz Mack lives and works on Ibiza some of the time. It is the Mediterranean light of Ibiza that makes everything radiate.
