Mack's light reliefs are among the most impressive works of light art that the "Zero" artist has produced since the middle of the 20th century. Characteristic is the interplay of light and space, which is reflected on the surface of the object and constantly changes depending on the viewer's point of view and the time of day.
At the beginning of the nineties Gerhard Richter developed his probably most important oil painting edition "Green-Blue-Red" on 115 plates for the Zurich art magazine Parkett. With the squeegee, a painting tool resembling a plastic strip, the painter applies the oil paint and pulls it off in thin layers from the left to the right edge of the picture. Whether and how the individual layers of paint mix with each other depends largely on the drying conditions of the underlying layers, but above all also on chance. Thus, the layers of paint on each of the canvases of the edition mix in a very different way.
Josef Albers began his famous series "Homages to the Square" at a relatively old age. While in Germany he had primarily worked with drawing and glass, in 1949/50, at the age of 62, he began to experiment with painting and the effect of colours. Our 1958 work "Squares: Blue and Cobalt Green in Cadmium Green" is composed of three coloured squares: a blue one in the centre, a cobalt green one and a cadmium green one in the outer frame. The artist's aim is to make his color experiments comprehensible and verifiable at the same time. Nevertheless, the works of the "Homage to the Square" series are not pure experimental fields. Rather, despite all rationality and minimalist reduction, they still give us an idea of the artist's feelings.
