Dear person who reblogged this picture by Squeak Carnwath that I posted hella long ago who is probably really confused,
Let me reiterate: this is by Squeak Carnwath, not Chuck Close. And more importantly, have you ever seen a Chuck Close piece in your life before? Because he has an extremely recognizable style. One might go so far as to call it a signature style. Once you have seen a Chuck Close piece, you can probably instantaneously recognize any other Chuck Close piece that exists publicly- and therefore also instantaneously discern what is not a Chuck Close piece. Maybe you should google Chuck Close and you would perhaps realize that this doesn’t look anything that he is famous for. It looks like a Squeak Carnwath piece. And maybe you’re just confused since they both have done work with Magnolia Editions (shout out to my boy Nick!) And this, in fact, is a piece editioned by Magnolia, an artist book that I got to see at Codex a couple of years ago in person, so I am like 1000% sure that this is not a Chuck Close piece.
The tl;dr version: google is really easy to use.
