Pace Gallery, New York, NY
September 11, 2015 - October 17, 2015
Currently open at Pace Gallery in Chelsea, Chuck Close's exhibition, Red, Yellow, Blue, features a new body of work in which, continuing his use of the grid and applying a system of layers, he delivers full-color paintings using only three: cyan, magenta and yellow. Following the line of inquiry evident throughout his career, Close is interested in employing minimal amounts of visual information to create fully recognizable images in order to investigate the process of visual cognition.
