Silk on linen
I chose this painting by Chuck close because I thought it was interesting contrast based on the grid work he usually does. This painting is different then his others because the squares for this work is not going horizontal or vertical ut are in a circle position. It gives the picture more depth and contrast based on the colors used for the face of his subject. Most of Close's work consisted of thousands of of square boxes that he would fill with multiple colors to compose skin tones, hair texture and background.
