Chuck Close

With a body of work composed almost entirely of portraits, Chuck Close has been astounding us with his artistic verisimilitude for more than four decades.
 

His prints, especially, are adventures in problem solving: working from the particularities of each print medium – woodcut, etching, silkscreen, linocut, aquatint, pulp-paper multiple – he gives his imagination free rein to reconceive their aesthetic possibilities. Although a spirit of experimentation characterizes Close’s work across all media, it is particularly evident in the wide-ranging scope of his printed production.

“Any innovation that is evident in my paintings is a direct result of something that happened in the course of making a print,” the artist has said.
 

Chuck Close has been engaged in a wide variety of print projects with Two Palms since 1998
