Yes, I just finished posting about David Mach’s coat hanger sculptures, but this artist has so many incredible works that it merits two consecutive posts, and still there is so much more to see! In his Matchheads, Mach uses thousands of live matches to create heads of famous people, not-so-famous people, busts in the style of Roman sculptures, Asian and African style masks, Picassoesque and Warholian influenced heads as well as many animal heads. Some are monochromatic and others use multiple colors. And if these aren’t impressive enough in their non-lit form, David Mach also lights them on fire resulting in a charred blackish-gray hue.

There is so much of David Mach’s work worth checking out. You can see his postcard collages here, his amazing brick train sculpture here, and even more installations here. Oh, and there’s a dominatrix made of dominoes here!
