Afternoon peeps and welcome to a brand new feature on Fresh on Folksy, it's called creative hero. This is really my excuse to throw in some arty bits and pieces and go slightly off beat from the Folksy promotion work, forgive me. It does also serve to hopefully inspire one or two of you, to show you the bounds of creativity and in some cases to question your own creative perspective, which is almost always useful.
For the very first creative hero slot, allow me to introduce to you (I know many of you will know about this guy) David Mach, sculptor and artist. David Mach uses found, everyday objects to sculpt with. I'm not going to delve deeply into the psyche of the man as there is much to be read on the beloved internet (David Mach). I am in deep awe of a guy who can see so exquisitely in three dimensions. I don't really know much about how he creates, the processes involved in his creations, I mostly care about the end product and how amazing it is, in my opinion. So, without further ado, I give you the work of David Mach:
Polaris - 6000 tyres
Elvis - Painted matchsticks
Close to the Bone - Painted matchsticks
Fuel to the Fire - Truck, cars, various everyday objects swept along by 100 tons of magazines
Train - bricks
Wild Thing - Coat hangers (unbelievably)
Gorilla - coat hangers
These are a few of my faves and the Polaris sculpture (not one of my faves) is one of his earliest pieces. I do urge you to find out more about David Mach and his amazing work.
Now that I have managed to distract you from your work for five minutes it's back to the grind stone for you I'm afraid. Don't blame me, blame your boss, and if you're the boss then you can afford yourself a little wry smile that no one is going to shout at you.
