Bruce Museum opens Closer: The Graphic Art of Chuck

. September 30, 2013

The Bruce Museum presents Closer: The Graphic Art of Chuck an exhibition on view September 28, 2013 – January 26, 2014.

With a body of work composed almost entirely of portraits, the American artist Chuck Close has been astounding us with his artistic verisimilitude for more than four decades.

His prints, especially, are adventures in problem solving: working from the particularities of each print medium – woodcut, etching, silkscreen, linocut, aquatint, pulp-paper multiple – he gives his imagination free rein to reconceive their aesthetic possibilities. Although a spirit of experimentation characterizes Close’s work across all media, it is particularly evident in the wide-ranging scope of his printed production.
