California based artist Andrew Myers drives screws at varying depths into plywood and paints over them, creating unique 3D images.
Andrew Myers starts with a plywood panel upon which he places pages of a phone book. He then draws out a face and drills 8,000 to 10,000 screws into each portrait.
For me, I consider this a traditional sculpture and all my screws are at different depths,” he said. “There’s nothing planned out. I draw out a figure on the board and figure out the depths.
“The real challenge comes when the sculpture is done and I have to get rid of the flat drawing. It’s hard because of the screws — you can’t get a brush behind them. I did figure out a way to do it, but I’m keeping it a secret.”
