Portraits, multilayer printings and processes
This could be an exhibition of beautiful large-scale up-close portraits. But this is also an exhibition about printing techniques. Chuck Close is showing his virtuousity in both detail and material:
Some portraits have an immense number of layers of every step on the grayscale, printed with stencil technique. Some portraits consist of tiny digits, each one a piece of art itself, and seems like no connection to the whole at all until you back off and see the colourful portrait. Some portraits are made by woodprint, some are made on fabric. And each technique is described in detail and level-by-level.
Here are some impressions:
