Glasgow - City of Sculpture
By Gary Nisbet
David Mach
(b. 1956)

Born Methil, Fife, he studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, 1974-79, and at RCA , London.

He works usually on a colossal scale producing temporary and permanent installations using waste products, consumer durables and multiples such as newsapers, bricks, containers, toys and tyres.

His first public work, Rolls Royce, was created from thousands of old books, and his Temple at Tyre, Edinburgh, was built using tyres.

He has exhibited work in Britain, Europe and the USA, and is represented in major international collections.

His RSA exhibits include Men at Work, 1985.
