Chuck Close Photographs, the first comprehensive survey of the photographic work of the renowned American artist, features some 90 images from 1964 to the present, showing the full range of the artist’s exploration of photography—from early black and white maquettes, to monumental composite Polaroids, to intimately scaled daguerreotypes and the most recent Polaroid nudes.
The exhibition, organized by the Parrish Art Museum, explores how one of the most important figures in contemporary art has stretched the boundaries of photographic means, methods, and approaches.
While known primarily as a painter, throughout his career Close has been deeply engaged in both photography and fine art printmaking. For more than 40 years, these artistic approaches have informed and inspired him. Chuck Close Photographs further demonstrates the broad reach of his art.
