Chuck Close: Self-Portrait/Scribble/Etching Portfolio Exhibition Opens Nov. 16
Chuck Close has been making self- portraits since the late 1960s. These efforts are invariably based on photographs that he makes of himself and famously translates into paintings, drawings, prints and other media- typically a methodical, labor-intensive process. His investment in such processes forms the subject of his Self- Portrait/Scribble/Etching Portfolio, a set of 25 prints that illustrates the steps required to produce a single, 12-color etching. It is also the focus of this exhibition, which uses that portfolio as a lens through which to examine the intersections and parallels that structure Close's artistic ideas. The exhibit will be open Nov. 16 through March 18.
