Selected reviews, photos, and appearances of Chuck Close tapestries

Chuck Close - Self Portrait/Five Part, 2009. Jacquard tapestry, 79 x 232 inches, Edition of 6

The Chuck Close tapestry editions published by Magnolia Editions have intrigued reporters, bloggers, art writers, and gallery-goers for several years now.

Since the publication of Philip Glass State I in 2005, Close's epic textile portraits have been pictured and discussed everywhere from magazines like W and TIME to blogs about opera and photography.

Magnolia has recently added a page to the Chuck Close section of its website with a selection of links to online press about the studio's publications by Close.

From podcasts to show reviews by both highbrow critics and amateur art aficionados, this selection offers a wide range of thoughtful responses to the Chuck Close tapestries, as well as some great photography (this flickr set, for example, or these images by Ralph Barrera).
