Michael Ferris Jr, New York
Here is the studio of a good friend Michael Ferris, his work is jaw dropping, as it is completely make of pieced wood. these sculptures made from wood that is both applied and carved, are held in place by pigmented grout. Mike's wall of baggies, are all the shapes and verities of wood utilized in the making of this work.
He uses all recycled and found wood, a few years back I visited him in New York and he was excited to point out how much wood you get from busting up a pallet. Mike paints and draws with equal intensity.
