Artist: David Mach
Piece: Laid Back
Media: Coat Hangers
I did not find anything about the piece itself and what it is about, but I did find it very interesting as to how it was made and how it is portrayed. My interpretation of the piece was that it shows a very provocative woman in a very sexual pose on a couch.
The artist used coat hangers to produce the piece and I thought that it was a great use of them. What better way to use extra coat hangers than to make it into a very well made piece of art. The position in which the artist put the subject was very important as well. he had another Coat Hanger piece called "Hooker" with a sculpture of a naked woman standing. I think this piece captured that meaning than the other one did because of the way the woman is laying.
I found the piece to be very effective in the ways that I interpreted it because the use of coat hangers surprised me and the way the coat hangers looked (the texture of the access hangers) made it work for me. I liked the use of coat hangers and the couch. It took a very surreal sculpture and put it into a more realist setting.
