  • Slide 14
  • Chuck Close Photo-Realism In 1988 Chuck Close was hospitalized due to the sudden collapse of a spinal artery. He has since been paralyzed from the waist down. He continues to paint on the same scale that he had always painted on. Now he has attendants that help him with the preliminary work, but he still does the actual painting. Sometimes he sits on a forklift, and other times he uses a special mechanical easel that raises, lowers, and rotates his canvases for him.

  • The Studio When I was walking around I was 6 foot 3, and people didn't tend to approach me very much, and one of the interesting things about being in a wheelchair is it sort of cuts you down to size and perhaps out of sympathy or whatever people feel much more like coming up to you. I'm more accessible I guess down here.

  • Chuck Close Photo-Realism Chuck Close was influence by the images of the Pop Artists. He felt the same way about Americas dependence on the second hand visual experience. None of his portraits are traditional. They tell us nothing about the subjects lives, feelings, character, profession, or social status. His works are merely paintings of photos of faces. The overwhelming detail forces us to think not about the subject, but about the image itself- how and why it was made.
