Andrew Myers

24 x 24 inches (framed 26 x 26 inches)
Oil on Steel: approximately 3,000 individually hand-painted steel head screws,
phone book pages adhered to wood panel, wood frame.

In this deconstruction series, Andrew uses screws, oil paint, and phone book pages 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. Only close inspection reveals which is which.
