Lorna- Chuck Close

This work Lorna by Chuck Close looks so much like a black and white photo it's astounding. The medium is jacquard tapestry. Close completed this work in 2006. What really drew me to this piece was not only how real it looks, but also how the use of shading draws the viewers attention to the face. The face as well as the woman's expression is very detailed in nature, while the rest of her; the neck, chest area and hair, are blurred.
