Chuck Close in Guardian AustraliaNovember 2014
Andrew Frost reviews 'Chuck Close: Prints, Process and Collaboration' at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia:
Chuck Close featured in Artist ProfileNovember 2014
"I was a magician as a kid, but I always broke the cardinal rule to never reveal how a trick was done. I feel the same way about this exhibition. I want people to see and experience how these prints are made, and to understand that prints like these are not "reproductions" or "lesser" in intrinsic value than paintings. I firmly believe that knowing how they are made doesn't take away from the magic of the work of art." - Chuck Close
