Chuck Close at The White Cube...

On Tuesday Stu, Andy, David and I went to the new Chuck Close exhibition at The White Cube in Bermondsey's not so glitzy LBQ (London Bridge Quarter).

Close's prints of pixelated, exploded views of the human face are quite extraordinary. He suffers from face blindness - unable to recognise facial features. He also suffered from a a severed stroke and can barely move - he holds his brush with his mouth. So this is a very personal exhibition.

The images are fantatsic. Bewitching, mesmerising and quite a technically achivement.


(Incidentally also at the White Cube is an exhibition with a naked guy on roller skates. Another reason to go!)
