Herbert Hamak (born 1952) has evolved a somewhat alchemical approach to painting: he mixes pigments with a binding agent of artificial resin and wax. Before the substance solidifies, he emerges his stretched canvas into a mold, while the image remains invisible. This publication presents Hamak's latest series developed specifically for Mies van der Rohe's Museum Haus Lange.
