Every time I visit my favorite museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, I must always take a visit to see my favorite painting by Chuck Close called 'Frank'. If you have ever been there, I promise you have seen it. It is a large painting that is seen through many hallways appearing as a photograph, until you inspect it closer and realize it is a painting.
Chuck close is not only one of my favorite artists for his paintings, but also his realistic approach to photography. A style that strips down the facade and simply shows a connection between the soul of the subject and the eye of the photographer.
