Chuck Close's exhibit, opening tomorrow at Pace, will include the first presentation of his newest experiment with technology: watercolor prints.
“Invention,” Robert Storr writes, “plays a pivotal part in the fundamental dynamics of Close’s work but not in the sense of contriving an unprecedented pictorial or conceptual model. Instead his pragmatism or, better said, innovative empiricism, is aimed at devising previously untested ways of filtering and organizing the data he observes in nature, initially captures photographically, and seeks to transpose by other means onto a two-dimensional surface.”
