Born In: 1956 Scotland
David Mach was born in Methil, Fife, in 1956. He studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee from 1974–79, and at the Royal College of Art, London from 1979–82. Mach is heavily influenced by Pop Art and consumerism, and employs a sense of drama, performance and unexpectedness in his work. Mach’s practice also explores materiality on a grand scale, by bringing multiples of mass–produced objects, most notably magazines, newspapers and car tyres, together in large–scale installations. His work is representational, humorous, often controversial and verges on the overwhelming in its scale and audacity.
David Mach currently works from his studio based in London~
Here’s other horses statues that are at the Masters……
So, Next time you hang your coat on your coat hanger, make sure it doesn’t neigh back at you!!!
Huh? What? Well, I will believe that when I see flying Shetlands !
