The Surprising Use of Otherwise Mundane Materials by David Mach

by Jane KenoyerPosted on


World renown artist David Mach has recently created stunning works of art by incorporating wire coat-hangers. Born in Scotland and now living in London, Mach is known for his use of everyday materials in his work. The Coathanger sculptures are huge forms covered in metal coat-hangers, both building up the volume of the figures and poking out of the forms as well. He is best known for his ‘heads’ created from matches and is interested in making something striking out of the mundane materials found in the everyday experience.
