At the opening of Richard Serra’s two new installations on display at the Gagosian, I had my second sighting of 2011 of my art crush, Chuck Close who was so warm and kind enough to pose for a photo. After I snapped this picture, an old couple ran up to me. The wife asked, “Excuse me. Who is that?” I replied “Chuck Close!” “See!” she snapped at her husband. “I told you it was him!”
Why am I so obsessed with him? My answer is here.
