The amazing and eco-friendly wood sculptures from talented artist Michael Ferris Jr. have a surreal yet humanistic feel to them. Ferris first plans his creations through hyperrealistic drawings that depict the human subject that he will be immortalizing with wood.
Dealing with wood can be a bit tricky, as organic materials tend to have a mind of their own as to how they are formed. Ferris deals with subjects that he already knows, attempting to "imbue the portrait with a fully realized and personal human presence." This type of approach gives the artist a familiarity with the subject that allows him to add little features that define the character of a person beyond just their physical looks. The patterns that he applies to wood sculptures is what truly sets these beautiful works of art apart.
