The only picture book autobiography by this well-known contemporary artist, with interactive, mix-and-match pages.
This fascinating, interactive autobiography presents Chuck Close’s story, his art and a discussion of the many processes he uses in the studio. The question-and-answer format is based on real kids’ inquiries about Close’s life and work and his answers to them. Close, who is wheelchair bound and paints with a brush strapped to his arm, discusses the severe dyslexia and face blindness he has struggled with since childhood, as well as a collapsed spinal artery that left him nearly paralysed at the age of 48. An engaging feature of the book is a mix-and-match Chuck Close self-portrait section. This hands-on component encourages the reader to create new and interesting combinations of Close’s techniques and images. The book also includes an illustrated chronology of Close’s life and a list of museums where his work can be seen.
