  15. 15. Chuck Close[American Photorealist Painter, born in 1940]
  16. 16. Chuck Close• Almost all of Close’s work is based on the use of a grid as an underlying basis for the representation of an image. Leslie 1986 Created with his own ink fingerprints!
  17. 17. • Photorealism--A style of painting in which an image is created in such exact detail that it looks like a photograph; uses everyday subject matter, and often is larger than life
  18. 18. What is Photorealism?• Photorealism or Superrealism. In this style, artists in the early 1970s created a link between representational systems of painting and photography.
  19. 19. • Photorealists frequently used a grid technique to enlarge a photograph and reduce each square to formal elements of design. Each grid was its own little work of art.
  20. 20. •Think about other self-portraits you have seen.•How is Closes painting like or different from the other two self-portraits? Text Frida Kahlo- Rembrandt Chuck Close Self Portrait
  21. 21. • One difference is that Close worked from a photograph while the other artists may have looked in a mirror. How are the “personalities” of these drawings different from Rembrandt and Kahlo’s portraits? Chuck Close, Chuck Close, Kiki 1993 Self-Portrait 2007
  22. 22. • Big Self-Portrait, in black and white, was the first of Closes mural-sized works painted from photographs.• This painting took four months to complete.
  23. 23. Why did Close’s style change? Detail of Kiki• Close experienced a tragedy that subsequently influenced his painting style. In 1988, he had a spinal blood clot, which left him a quadriplegic, unable to move either his legs or his arms.• With a paint brush clamped between his teeth, he developed a new way to paint. His portraits, the photos, and canvases were gridded off by assistants and then he used his mouth brush to paint, using the techniques of grisaille and pointillism within the grids
