COAT HANGERS by David Mach

for scottish artist david mach, the idea is to turn everyday objects into extraordinary pieces of art.

“I like to use very ordinary materials, materials that are in everybody’s lives,” he said.

“they are not a specialist thing — I didn’t go to a specialist art shop and select some of their finest materials.
I simply extracted it from life.”

mach is especially fond of using coat hangers as a medium because they are, he admits, “such a nothing thing.”

“a coat hanger is not something you would give a second thought to, but then we take them and reinvent those things.”
