Chuck Close on youtube

One of my most admired contemporary artists (living) is Chuck Close. His career and fabulous work are awe-inspiring! Recently I came across a video on youtube released by the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) which is an interview with Chuck. The film is cut into two parts of 10 or 12 minutes each and well worth viewing. Mr Close is well-spoken, articulate and pleasant. I am excited to gain some insight into his philosophy of making art, and am mulling over some of his ideas now.
The title is the link.
