Chuck Close, Big Self-Portrait, 1967-1968, [source]

“It’s the tension between the marks on a flat surface, and then the image built, that interested me. And I was always a dyed-in-the-wool formalist anyway. I think process sets you free, because you know you don’t have good days or bad days. You just show up. You don’t wait for inspiration.”
