Painted Screw Portraits by Andrew Myers

Andrew Myers has created an incredible series of larger than life portraits, made out of simple materials – screws, oil paint, and phone book pages on wood. In this deconstructive series, Andrew uses those simple materials to depict portraits that emphasize the interplay and contrast between light and shadow. Despite being ethereal in nature, Andrew is fascinated by the power of shadows to create the appearance of form. At first glance, it may not be clear if the “shadows” in these pieces are created from paint or actual shadows cast by the screws.
