Chuck Close at Aperture Gallery, 2006

A Couple of Ways of Doing Something features daguerreotype portraits of many of the artist-friends who have been the subject of Chuck Close’s paintings over the years, including Cindy Sherman, Philip Glass, and Andres Serrano. Lyrical praise poems by New York School poet Bob Holman accompany each photograph. For the exhibit, which coincides with the release of the Aperture book, A Couple of Ways of Doing Something, Close has used each daguerreotype as a base to create other works in a variety of media, including tapestries, photogravures, and digital pigment prints.
