The William Shearburn Gallery is proud to present a gallery of works by Chuck Close that will run through May 10.

Chuck Close has been a leading figure in contemporary art since the early 1970s. The artist’s subjects are his family, his friends, himself, and fellow artists whose faces are described through his distinct, meticulous marks. Working from a gridded photograph, Chuck Close builds his images by applying one careful stroke after another in multi-colors or grayscale. Chuck Close works are generally larger than life and highly focused. For Chuck Close, it is the process of description that renders meaning, rather than the subject itself.
