Heinz Mack - artist, constructor, inventor and discoverer. At the end of the 1950s, the German artist founded the ZERO group in Düsseldorf and, together with Otto Piene and Günther Uecker, created a new avant-garde that had a major influence on the development of art in Europe and America. His central artistic theme is light. Non-objective pictures and sculptures are brought to life by light. The multifaceted oeuvre leads beyond painting to light reliefs and light cubes and to this day to an enormous variety of different sculptures such as stelae, rotors, reliefs, mirrors, sculpture projects in untouched landscapes or artificial light environments. His Sahara Project is one of the first examples of Land Art.
Since 1990 Mack has turned again to pure colour in his painting, which he himself calls "chromatic constellations". In his colour spaces, a dynamic principle of light and colour emerges, creating tension and harmony at the same time. True to the artist's motto, colour becomes light and light becomes colour.
