Colour plays a decisive role in the art of Heinz Mack—next to light, certainly the most important. For more than three decades now, Heinz Mack has been known for his colourful and often very large-format pictures, in which he 'Chromatic Constellations', the artist uses colour gradients and structures to create new colour families that lead to a harmony all of their own.
As a gallery that is particularly concerned with the ZERO years in Heinz Mack’s oeuvre, we would also like to draw a chronological timeline to the artist’s contemporary works with this exhibition. As early as the 1950s and 60s, Heinz Mack painted with strong primary colours, which found their very own expression in his monochrome painting and which stand out particularly in the phase of silver metal reliefs, experiments with light and the predominantly black and white 'Dynamic Structures'. These paintings unite everything that occupied Heinz Mack in those ZERO years and covers the spectrum to his present-day works.
We invite you to indulge in this play of colours!
The exhibition takes place on the occasion of the recently published book "Mack - Painting", which was published by Hirmer Verlag.
