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.

David Shrigley - Surface and Surface

I don’t know why I like David Shrigley’s work so much, it’s badly drawn and a lot of it make no sense but when it’s good it’s sharp and very funny.

“Shrigley finds humour in flat depictions of the inconsequential, the unavailing and the bizarre – although he is far fonder of violent or otherwise disquieting subject matter.”

David Shrigley’s exhibition ‘Brain Activity’ runs until 13th May at the Hayward Gallery in London. Watch his presentation at Offset 2009 below and David’s first adventures into the realm of video art which is a take on minimalist artist Martin Creed’s controversial Turner prize winning work entitled ‘The Lights Going On and Off..’.
