Andrew Myers‘ uses unique medium to interesting effect.  His pieces are built of many carefully placed screws – up to nearly 10,000 in just one piece – inserted to just the right depth.  He then uses oils to pain the image on the heads of the screws.  Myers accepts the challenges of depicting soft surfaces, movement, and light with a material as hard and utilitarian as screws.  The result is an intriguing mix between painting and relief.  The screws add to the depth to that typically found in oil painting.
