Curtis Dickman

 Contemporary Artist

My paintings of artist Chuck Close. He is a renown portrait painter who worked with photorealism during the first part of his career. He began painting abstract portraits after he recovered from partial paralysis from a spinal cord stroke.
My original paintings of Chuck Close published here are a tribute to this great artist using a grid technique and abstraction similar to the style Mr Close uses. My paintings were based on one of his photorealistic self portraits from the 1960's (gray scale painting that looks like a photo shown in the series; with credit to Mr. Chuck Close).
