Featured Artist: David Mach’s Matchstick Statues

Faces Statutes Art Sculptors

“Mach’s artistic style is based on flowing assemblages of mass-produced found art objects. Typically these include magazines,vicious teddy bears,newspapers, car tires, match sticks and coat hangers. Many of his installations are temporary and constructed in public spaces.” ~ Wikipedia Faces Statutes Art Sculptors

My Thoughts:

I stumbled onto this guys work and was struck by the bold colors in it.  Then the more I looked at it the more into the detail I got.  Anyways, I’m always a sucker for stuff that catches easily on fire and it was great to know that at the end of each showing he likes to light one of his sculptors up.  I sometimes think artists take their pieces to serious and was refreshing to see that he doesn’t as much.  Some work is best left unsaid and I think his work speaks for its self.  Be sure to see some of his other sculptors as well, as it’s nothing like the the Match Series.
