David Mach creates new Sculpture to mark the 400th anniversary
Date Published: Friday, 21 January 2011
David Mach’s coat-hanger Crucifixion, 'Die Harder’, will be on show in Gloucester Cathedral at Easter, he also has an exhibition in Edinburgh called 'Precious Light’ which opens in July.
In reference to The King James Bible, David Mach says:
'I like the expression “The Bible Is The Word” – to me its all about communication. The King James Bible communicated its message so effectively that its language still resonates through our speech to this day. Today we live in an age of sophisticated mass communication – satellites, computers, and live TV links – and yet we still have wars, famine and bigotry. To me that represents a failure of communication.
'The King James Bible holds as pertinent a mirror up to our human failings as it did when it was first published 400 years ago. The richness, devastation and pestilence of biblical imagery is as fine a subject as I could wish for to explore the hypocrisies of the contemporary world.'
