Chuck Close - Self Portait

I chose this piece by Chuck Close because I like the way he is able to create such life-like detail in his painting. Not only that, but Chuck Close paints one individual square at a time; treating it like it is its own work of art. To me, being able to create a realistic painting out of many small ones is a feat in itself. Finally, I like how he is able to use contrasting colors within his painting, and even within individual squares, to create a very unique color set within the painting.
