Chuck Close: Editioned Prints
Chuck Close... Susan (1988, Colored, handmade paper, ed 50). From Chuck Close: Editioned Prints at Greg Kucera Gallery in Seattle, WA. "...Chuck Close's subjects are his family, his friends, himself, and fellow artists whose faces are described through his distinct, meticulous marks. Working from a photograph with a grid, he builds his images by applying one careful stroke after another in multi-colors or grayscale. His works are generally larger than life and highly focused. For Close, it is the process of description that renders meaning, rather than the subject itself."
