Chuck Close


ARTIST STATEMENT

Chuck Close is one of America's most eminent artists. He emerged as a painter in 1960s New York with large-scale photo-realist portraits, and has forged a career making work based on minute observations of his own head and that of his friends and family. Over the years, Close's square by square process has been made intrinsic to the composition of his work. More and more, we find heads fragmented into a myriad of intricate abstract shapes. Nevertheless, from a distance the subject still resonates as a clear motif.
