Stunning New Screw Portrait by Andrew Myers

Andrew Myers, who we first introduced you to back in February 2011, is back with a fantastic new piece called Fading Thoughts. This time, Myers wanted to take his work one step further by creating a scene that gives a sense of motion. “I don’t want that dead portrait look anymore,” he says. “So I want to actually make a scene, something that appears to be happening that isn’t really happening. So you’re not only getting the 3D effect that’s a lie, it’s an effect, because of the screws, but then you’re getting another effect that the fan is actually in motion and that something is actually blowing off the page.

“So it’s kind of a test to see how far I can push this material.”

Myers worked with filmmaker Benjamin Pitts to show us how the piece comes together in a beautiful, short documentary. While watching Myers bring it to life is amazing enough, listening to fellow artists describe his technique will give you a whole new appreciation for his work. “These are special,” one artist says, “and they’re very labor intensive. It takes many, many, many man hours. It takes a lot of hours to do an oil painting, but this is an oil painting and a sculpture. And painting on screw heads is not as easy as it is on a flat surface.”

Check out these photos Myers sent directly to us and make sure to watch the video, below. For those who are seeking creative inspiration, this video is gold.
