News and photos from Magnolia Editions, a fine art studio in Oakland, CA.
I recently saw one of the Chuck Close self portraits in a private collection recently and I was blown away the surface is sublime almost velvety. I would never have imagined it possible to get such subtlety and emotion in a tapestry. To see the process adds a new dimension too.
Thanks for commenting! I wonder which Close tapestry you saw. They are so different in person... seeing a reproduction on the web, even video, just isn't the same.Enjoying the art images on your blog. Thanks again!
The tapestry I saw was one of the monochrome self portraits at a friends house in Istanbul. I remember a while back seeing some Chuck Close Daguerreotypes at White Cube in London of similar images. On a separate note I also used to study printmaking at St.Martins with Faisal (before he was Faisal) small world !!Thanks for the nice comments about our blog we endeavor to show interesting art at our space here in Berlin.
