The Incredible, David Mach

David Mach, brilliant sculptor born in Scotland, creates astonishing installations utilizing an unlikely instrument: coat hangers. Each piece is made of hundreds of standard metal coat hangers, welded to each other around a plastic mold. The hangers are then plated with a silver nickel finish.

David’s international reputation was quickly established with exhibitions around the world. In addition to coat hangers, the Turner Prize-nominated artist uses match sticks to create collages. His exhibition entitled “Precious Light” featuring a dramatic depiction of the crucifixion at Calvary (below), opened in August with a performance by Mach burning a devil’s head sculpture made from 1,000 matches.
