In this film, Chuck Close discusses his career-long involvement with print making. Analysing the relationship between his prints and paintings, Close explains how the intimate nature of the print medium, its demand for a closer viewing distance and its ability to “slow everything down” are key factors in his work. Close likens making a print to a meandering, experimental journey that demands active participation from both the artist and the viewer and a willingness to transcend physical reality.
