Phil/Fingerprint II

The title of the piece of art is Phil/Fingerprint II by Chuck Close, made in 1978. The media used is stamp-pad ink and graphite on paper. This picture was created by the artist by using fingerprints. Close used his finger to create the picture by stamping it on to the grid. I found this picture interesting because of how the artist used the same stamp, his fingerprint, in various different values to create the whole image of the person. Another thing I found cool was how the further you get from the image the more clear it becomes.
