Keltie Ferris and Chuck Close

Keltie Ferris' art space is in an apartment in NYC. This piece might reflect her view out the window of her studio. The lines around the piece look like a frame or a window. The paint has a blurry look and seems to represent things and places that are hiding. Also, she said she had a feeling of solitude. This is also reflected in her work, as her art reflects her desire to connect to the world around her, the one she sees out her window.

As Chuck Close said, "If you are overwhelmed by the size of a problem, break it down into many bite size pieces." This is reflected in most, if not all, of his art work. Also, because he has faced so much adversity, he has had many problems that he's had to overcome. For example, I wondered how he painting the tops of his paintings because they were so high up, but then I saw the painting being spun down so he could reach it. His work space is set up to accommodate who he is.
