Chuck Close creating portrait using his FINGERPRINTS ONLY

Chuck Close -  more than just a painter, photographer and printmaker

For more than 30 years, Chuck Close - renowned as one of America's foremost artists in any media - has explored the art of printmaking in his continuing investigation into the principles of perception. This exhibition provides a comprehensive survey of the full extent of Close's long involvement with the varied forms and processes of printmaking, and the first such investigation in more than twelve years of what can only be termed a prodigious accomplishment in the field. Featuring images ranging from 1972 to the present, Chuck Close Prints shows the artist's range of invention in etching, aquatint, lithography, handmade paper, direct gravure, silkscreen, traditional Japanese woodcut and reduction linocut.
