David Mach

Here David Mach used various postcards to create a collage of the all American Barbie. From far you cannot tell that this portrait is made up of pieces of postcards only when you are close you can see the distinct images. It is also not smooth it has a rough texture. The postcard collection was shown at the solo exhibition at Jill George Gallery in London in October 2006. I also chose Mach last week and wanted to see some of his other work and that is why I chose this image. I thought it was very creative and different. I like how it is an image everyone knows and the colors fit the Barbie theme perfectly. I also like how he used postcards to create this it is a very complex piece.
