What's in a face?Chuck Close's fantastic new exhibition, curated by the Parrish Art Museum, has landed in the UK. The White Cube Bermondsey is playing host to the artist's hottest new showcase, 'Chuck Close Prints: Process and Collaboration’. The 150-plus works in the exhibition include woodcuts, copper-plate engravings, aquatints, etchings, pulp paper works and tapestries and have been praised extensively on its world-wide tour. Close specialises in creating faces, often of his close friends and family including Philip Glass, Alex Katx and Lucas Samaras. The focal variation, described by the artist as ‘a sharp focus data within a sandwich of blur’, makes the faces seem unfamiliar and impersonal, even though they are presented in extreme close-up. A unique aspect of the show is Close's inclusion of the different stages he enters when creating his masterpieces, an art lover's dream. So head on down to the White Box and lose yourself in the fantastical aura that resonates through the work from one of the most talented artists of our day.
'Chuck Close is magician and myth-buster all in one. With one hand, he does a trick, while with the other he shows you how it's done.' - The Washington Post.
