TRANSCRIPT

  • Chuck Close1940- still alive!

  • American painterFrom Monroe, WashingtonHad a blood clot that left him paralyzed. He then painted with the brush held in his teethHe has since gained a bit more mobilityMost of his works are very large portraits based on photographs. He uses the photorealism technique

  • Graduated from UW in 1963, then got his MFA from YaleLived in Europe then taught art at the U of MAHad shows in the Whitney and MOMAStarts by putting a grid on the photo and on the canvas and copies cell by cell His first tools for this included an airbrush, rags, razor blade, and an eraser mounted on a power drill His first picture with this method was Big Self Portrait, a black and white

  • Current work (daguerreotypes) The daguerreotype (original French: daguerrotype) is an early type of photograph, developed by Louis Daguerre, in which the image is exposed directly onto a mirror-polished surface of silver bearing a coating of silver halide particles deposited by iodine vapor. In later developments bromine and chlorine vapors were also used, resulting in shorter exposure times. The daguerreotype is a negative image, but the mirrored surface of the metal plate reflects the image and makes it appear positive in the proper light. Thus, daguerreotype is a direct photographic process without the capacity for duplication.

  • YOUR MISSIONWork in your table groupsCreate a photograph made up of a bunch of smaller photographsHas to be a face (front or side view)Can choose one out of a magazine, one of the portraits someone in your group has taken, you can take a new one for this assignmentUse new photos that you cut out of magazines to make up the large image

  • Use pics of noses to make the nose, pics of eyes to make the eyes etcThe final image has to be at least 16 x 20. Can be larger. Paste the smaller images onto the cardboard I give you
