Influenced by Mosaics: Michael Ferris, Jr.

On 14, Sep 2011 | No Comments | In Et cetera, News | By man-admin

Skipping through the net, our jaw dropped to the floor at this incredible work by Michael Ferris, Jr. According to the artist’s website his works are all:

“. . . portraits of the artist’s family and friends. Ferris’ intention is to interpret the sitter’s psychological state and to capture his emotional connection to his subject through a combination of crude and refined carved surfaces as well as bold patterns that recall Maori tattoos and Byzantine mosaics.”

The artist carves and stacks recycled wood and uses pigmented grout.

Extraordinary.

Michael Ferris, Jr

Enjoy — Nancie
