About Artist: Chuck Close was born in 1940 in Monroe, Washington and lives and works in New York City and Long Island. He has had several retrospective touring exhibitions which include; a touring show at four venues (1980-1981) including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Since the late 1960s Chuck Close has been concentrating on portraiture and the human face in painting and photography and is one of the most celebrated artists working today. Close often takes his family and friends as models, making monumental and classical works that are both bold in their simplicity as well as intangible, since the images appear as if they have been viewed through a thick layer of glass or are rippling on the surface of water. In this way, the subjects of his paintings can seem like apparitions, dissolving and resolving when viewed from different distances.
