David Mach


David Mach - surface and surfaceMeticulously constructed matchstick and coat hanger sculptures from Scottish Artist David Mach. David was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1988 and is currently exhibiting work at the Galway Arts Festival entitled ‘Precious Light’.  His work is made of everyday “non objects” taking and turning them into something inspiring; while tackling the subjects of religion and modern culture.

David accidentally discovered the performance power of his matchstick sculpture when a collector set one alight while having it cleaned. The resulting shared remains were much more interesting after the blaze. You can find his amazing collage work and more of his sculptures on his site below. David Mach’s exhibition continues at the Galway Arts Festival until the 19th of July.
