David Mach. If this name is familiar, it might be because I just featured his work in “Coathangers by David Mach.” Here is another series of the Scottish artist’s sculptural work. Very different from “Coathangers” though similar in scale or massiveness.
Using thousands of pounds of discarded magazines, Mach’s voluminous pieces appear like gigantic serpents, engulfing furniture, cars and entire rooms. What is Mach trying to say? I couldn’t find an artist’s statement for this series, but I think he may be speaking to me. Being afflicted with the inability to throw away magazines, these humongous creatures may be growing in my home.
