Last Supper unveiled
30 September 2011
Throughout one of the most acclaimed UK exhibitions of the summer, David Mach and his studio have been hard at work - in full view of the public - on the Last Supper, a huge 24ft by 8ft decoupage.
The spectacular work features images of the board of VentePrivée, a French online retailer, as Jesus and his twelve disciples. The finished Last Supper decoupage was formally unveiled at the City Art Centre on 28 September by the French Consul General, Pierre-Alain Coffinier.
David Mach said: "Precious Light has been a huge undertaking for us and since the doors opened to the public, we have continued to work on this last piece. It's been a revelation working in the gallery, meeting, talking to and watching the reactions of visitors. I know it's been fascinating for me to watch them and I hope it's been fascinating for them to watch us too. It's certainly an unusual situation. Normally you install a show and disappear."
Precious Light is on at the City Art Centre until 16 October.
