This is a self portrait by Chuck Close made in 2008. The media used in this piece is handmade paper on canvas. The artist uses segments of colored paper to recreate a portrait of himslef. The artists use of color and technique is really extraordinary as he makes the portrait come to life by simply using colored paper. The artist uses a lot of warm colors to create the face and compliments it with cool colors to distinguish facial properties ie. nose, eye, beard etc.. I find the artists technique very interesting.
