Chuck Close Selected Paintings and Tapestries at PACE/WILDENSTEIN

James Kalm makes his way to the Thursday night power-opening of Chuck Close. These massive portraits are Post-Modern icons that meld ideas about photography, abstraction and celebrity worship into a heady m?lange of color line and inside the art world politics. Recent paintings include the artists daughters and the former president Bill Clinton. Larger black and white wool tapestries reproduce examples of the artists photo portraits, and present huge images that are as rich in velvety texture and detail as they are in historical precedent (being produced in Belgium using 400 year old techniques).
