In an interview Chuck Close once said, “From the beginning (what I) wanted to do was mitigate against the standard hierarchy of the portrait” .

Simply put, he wanted take the focus away from the subject of the portrait and the subject to be no more important than the process by which the painting itself was completed. He wanted all parts to be equal.
