CLOSE, Chuck

A prolific and celebrated artist, Chuck Close has worked for nearly four decades within a carefully defined practice focused exclusively on portraiture. Close’s own image, more than any other, is the touchstone to which he regularly returns. Starting with a source photograph, Close carefully transposes his image to a canvas or other surface using a grid. Cross-referencing painting, drawing, photography, collage, and printmaking, the resulting works are truly hybrid objects that merge manual and mechanical processes and explore boundaries between the personal and the social, the subjective and the systematic, the abstract and the representational.
