The everyday items that we all use sometimes seem dull and ordinary, and the thought that they might one day serve as material for an inspiring art piece is pretty much miles and miles away from our mind. Toasters, buttons and even eggshells have become quite impressive art pieces in the past, and predicting the materials that we’ll see used in the future is almost impossible. When it comes to pure creativity, artists who venture into the unknown have to be the most inspiring for aspiring artists today. Overlooking the obvious is nothing an artist should ever do it seems, and that becomes apparent when you find art pieces that border on the brink of madness.
David Mach, an artist I wrote about yesterday, is one of those artists whose imagination never stops impressing me. Yesterday we featured his incredible Matchhead sculptures, and today we visit his art vault once again to bring you something even more… razor sharp! Take a look at all those metal coat hangers in your wardrobe and ask yourself, “What can I possibly make out of those if I had the time and energy?”
Well, one interesting undertaking would be to turn thousands of coat hangers into sculptures that truly want you to take a couple steps back, literally. David used thousands and thousands of such metal coat hangers, and he created some of the most insane artwork I have seen in a while. There is a crucified man, a bear and a bunch of other things that are all part of his highly emotional sculptures. One might even say these sculptures truly border on the razor sharp edge of artistry. Amazing!
