Chuck Close is renowned for his highly inventive investigations into how we process information. Celebrated internationally, Close uses the absolute minimum amount of information necessary to render likenesses. In his new works, Close continued his involvement with the grid as an organizing device, creating full-color paintings out of only cyan, magenta, and yellow pigments, and layering colors in singular brushstrokes. Close is reinventing techniques he first developed in the 1970s and 1980s; however, this time the color has no relationship to reality. This will be Close’s sixteenth exhibition with Pace.
