"My metal reliefs, which I prefer to all light reliefs, were solely formed through the pressure of my fingers. They live on light instead of colors. With a shiny polish, a slight reflection is enough to shatter the light's peace and to make it vibrate. The potential beauty of these structures would be pure expression of the beauty of light."
Heinz Mack, quote from: Daniels / John, Collection Cremer I, 1991, pp. 142f.
