Chuck Close by Eric Fischl
Thinking about what to write about today, I remembered Eric Fischl. When I was in art school he was one of my favourite painters, but I don’t hear much about him so I tend not to think that much about him. Imagine my surprise, given writing about Chuck Close yesterday, that Fischl recently (ish) painted Chuck Close’s portrait.
There is something charmingly meta about paintings of paintings.
It’s good to see that Fischl is still painting, regardless of all the critics’ blithe assertions that painting is dead. Screw them. More of Eric Fischl’s work can be seen here.
