Über das Werk
In his paintings, Mack exhibited a preference for colours which appear in the continual sequence, or as a logical progression, of the light spectrum - with the spectral colours featuring particularly strongly. Pure light is colourless, and only when it meets a surface, when it refracts, does it exert its unique fascination. In his application of the spectral colours, Mack sets himself apart from the "colour painters" of his generation such as Gotthard Graubner. His chromatic colour scale is based on the colours of the rainbow generated by the prismatic refraction of light.
