Working with reclaimed wood, sculptor Michael Ferris Jr. creates large-scale, mosaic-like portraits of people he knows. Though his execution is painstakingly realist, the life-like quality of the work breaks down at its surface. Minuscule, geometric pieces of wood wrap around each crevice and curve with mathematical precision. With their soft hues, the works transmit the sense of familiarity one gets from browsing family photos. Ferris creates a series of drawings in tandem with his sculptures that become artworks in their own right. Take a look at some of his work below.
