“Most people are drawn to the portraits because they have something different about them (from a distance especially). Seeing them in person is a whole different feel than seeing the photograph. They have a sense of depth that the photo can’t capture.” – Andrew Myers
Andrew Myers is a Californian based modern day sculptor who uses screws as his medium to create amazing works of art. The first stages of constructing his masterpieces include a base, plywood panel, and then places pages of a phone book on top these pages are from his subject’s local area. He then draws out a face and pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes, by hand. As he drills in the screws, without using computer software to guide him during this process he figures out the composition of the artwork as he goes along.
