About the work

The magic of colours has already accompanied Heinz Mack through many decades of his work in painting, and it is also this that mesmerises viewers of his paintings again and again. “I love the purity of colours”, says the artist, “I love the light in the colours.” His life-long passion for light has taken him to places flooded with sunlight, like the Mediterranean countries (the artist maintains a studio on Ibiza), Southeast Asia and the Orient.Light and colour are the objects of Mack’s painting, like in this “Chromatische Konstellation”, which is defined by luminous, airy colouring. As always, the artist follows a non-representational design principle and constructs his image area of geometric forms, in this case rectangles of varying sizes, orientations and colours However, the individual forms in no way stand unrelated next to one another: irregularities, overlaps, fraying, additional smaller stroke layers, brush flecks and hatching allow the elements to enter into a connection with one another and interact. In this way, the customer adds dynamism to his pictorial construction, allows it to vibrate and lends the pictorial structure the aesthetic complexity of an open and colourful universe.
