Nudity was something that never spoken of , let alone seen in public. Through his art, Close has captured everything people as physical beings are — their looks, their emotions, their relation to the question of naked body and, most importantly, their raw honesty. He started making paintings derived from black-and-white photographs of a female nude, which he copied onto canvas and painted in color. I chose to do things I had no facility with. The choice not to do something is in a funny way more positive than the choice to do something.

Although the transferred image "reads" as a flat transcription of light and dark characteristic of a photograph, the painting's variegated brushstrokes reveal Big Nude to be more of a prototype for future development than a fully resolved picture. Poised precariously between a common studio exercise in figure drawing and a s girlie magazine shoot, "Big Nude" also challenges the future of representational painting at a moment in history when the genre would seem to have long ago exhausted its potential for future development. Only the antiseptic whiteness of the canvas hints at a new approach to the figure that might perfectly marry an instant, unforgiving photographic record of a subject with the artist's reconsideration of its every component over months of studied, methodical transcription. The tentative air of experimentation that might be said to characterize Big Nude is nowhere apparent in Big Self-Portrait , a watershed painting that virtually showcases Close's unique method.

When you look back on the artistic contributions of Chuck Close, you likely imagine oversized hyperrealistic portraits that resemble celebrity mugshots accidentally printed onto giant sheets of bubble wrap. Although his most iconic works capture his subjects from above the neck, that's not to say Close never dared to depict what lied below. For the dubious, or simply the curious, allow us to present "Nudes — ," an exhibition of Close's body-centric artworks from the past five decades. Ranging from Polaroids to daguerreotypes to an acrylic painting, Close captures the human form with the same meditative intensity that he's used to show the face for all these years.
