An Artist’s Winter by Andrew Myers

Composite 2 April 2015 2 Comments

Andrew Myers creates portraits using an unlikely medium – screws.  In this early, experimental screw piece that measures 2 feet x 2 feet, he transformed thousands of screws, oil paint, and phonebook pages into a self-portrait expressing the difficult feelings he was experiencing at that time.  He notes that when he created this particular piece, it was a dark and cold winter outside the studio, and a dark and cold winter inside the artist’s soul.
