Amazing portraits built from screws explore tactility and the senses

Experimenting with the senses, Andrew Myers specialises in creating large-scale artworks made with screws and paint, amongst other things. The tactile quality of Myers’ art is rather unique, allowing the work to be experienced beyond sight. Using thousands of meticulously arranged screws for each piece, the artist incorporates paint to create the final image.

Often his works are portraits, bringing to life the human face by means of such a distinctive method. The artist explains how one of his favourite memories was watching a blind man experience his work for the first time. Due to the three-dimensional element of the pieces and the texture of the screws, the blind man could feel what other could see, instantly understanding and recognising the piece.
