Chuck Close Tapestry - Weaving proofs
So thanks to Chuck Close's studio, the fine folks at Pace, and the super fine folks at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, we will be exhibiting the tapestry being weaved and shown in these videos. The piece will be in our January self portraiture show. This thing is massive and it is amazing to watch the insanity that is the loom. The video below with the 3 picture piece being woven is roughly a third of the piece in its entirety.
