Mach Goes Commando

Fire Brigade - Commando Collage - Accidental Monument - 29x29cm - 2015 (002) resized

6th June to 27th August

A series of collages inspired by and created from original Thompson ‘Commando’ comics by Turner Prize nominee David Mach RA. The artwork from the comics has been reassembled to form mini epics, charged with energy and celebrating childhood comic book heroes.

Known for his sculptural pieces, David explains ‘Collage has always been a major part of my studio practice. I would use it to show ideas for sculpture in the same way other artists might sketch out a design… The Commando collage was easy for me to get into, the original comics being part of my own personal art history.’

Exhibition entry included in general admission price.
