Self Portrait of Daniel R. Carver

Self Portrait of Daniel R. Carver

Piece description from the artist

The style of this painting is heavily influenced by artist Chuck Close. He paints enormous realistic portraits from photos using a grid method. To create his paintings, Close puts a grid on the photo and on the canvas and copies cell by cell. I’ve employed this similar approach, except I’ve taken this image away from realism, and toward abstraction. I added movement to the painting by building my color on a foundation of grooved impasto texture. I love how colors can blend together to create a vibrant impression of my face.
