Summary
With editing completed by filmmaker Ken Kobland after the death of director/producer Marion Cajori, this movie describes the life and work of an artist who has reinvented portraiture. Close photographs his subjects, blows up the image to gigantic proportions, divides it into a detailed grid and then uses a complex set of colors and patterning to reconstruct each face. The artist describes his methodology and many of his artistic influences. Friends and colleagues including Brice Marden, Robert Storr, Dorothea Rockburne, Philip Glass, Arne Glimcher, Kiki Smith, Elizabeth Murray, Alex Katz, Kirk Varnedoe and others offer their perspective on Close's talents
