drawing and photography

An ongoing repository of my unstructured thoughts and references to valued contributions to the arts of Drawing, Photography and Print that will be structured into coherent  presentations.

Chuck Close

Close works from photographs that he takes of his sitters in nearly every case the head is viewed frontally, like a driver’s license photograph or even a mug shot. His subject is not the sitter, but a photograph of the sitter.  This makes an important difference : photographs stop time, if only for a second, and the resulting images continually experimented with through new and varied techniques.
