Art with Screws

This artist mixes different disciplines by being a painter, sculptor all in one, but in a totally different way to what we expect.  Andrew Myers has a very varied background as he was Born in Germany, brought up in Spain and then moved to the US to attend College.  In the part of the work we will explore in this article which he calls " We Don’t Belong in the Shadows" he makes use of screws, oil paint, and phone book pages to depict portraits.  He makes use of shadow to complete his figures, very clever and look perfect when hung up, see Facundo 1.


I know it is a long video but it is worth making the time to watch it.  This is the kind of video that should be shown in schools.  Art classes would be enriched by
inspiring students to see that art composition can be achieved in infinite kind ways and not just by painting on canvas.
