While muddling around on the internet the other day I came across this fantastic artist called Andrew Myers.
He works in a whole range of mediums but one of his more intriguing ones is 'Screw's. He does a lot of portraits using screws but the one's below are my favourites.
Below is a quote about Myers work in relation to the artwork that looks like a piece of hanging fabric.
In this dualistic piece, Andrew aimed to express the warm, soft, and smooth nature of a cloth sheet using the cold, hard, and sharp medium of steel screws. Just like actual sheets, this piece accomplishes a softer effect using a high “thread” count. In this case, the threads of 5,562 screws.
The background is created with limestone and marble dust, combined to create the effect of an actual wall. Measures 4′ x 6′.
His work can be found at his website- http://andrewmyersart.com/
The piece below would have to be my favourite.
