Chuck Close Up.

Starting this Saturday, the Corcoran Gallery of Art will host a special exhibition of portraiture works from famed Chuck Close. Close experimented with innovative techniques that push the limits in painting. Entitled Chuck Close Prints: Process and Collaboration, the exhibit which runs through September 12th, will feature more than 100 of his finished works will be on display to convey to visitors just how cool and deep a portrait can be.

The Corcoran web site explains, “When making a print, Close and his collaborators complete every stage of their process —from translating an image onto a matrix, to carving wood blocks, etching plates, and applying multiple layers of color—by hand. The mammoth scale and technical complexity of many of his portraits, combined with this time-consuming process, often means that a single print may take years to complete.”

Wow.
