In 1957, Heinz Mack was co-founder of the Europe-wide artists' movement ZERO. Deploying new, even electronic techniques, the young artists created modern and dynamic works, which broke with traditional notions of art. In 1968 Heinz Mack completed his last picture for the time being, before devoting himself in the ensuing years exclusively to sculpture. Not until 1991 did he return to painting, producing arrestingly chromatic paintings, whose radiance and dynamic-geometric structures bore witness to Mack's philosophy on the life-giving energy of light.
The intrapictorial progression of colours in his Chromatic Constellations is evocative of a prism-like refraction of light. Executed in effulgent colours and with fleeting brushstrokes, the painting appears to radiate from within and exudes both energy and dynamism.
