I have long been a great fan of the works of Chuck, of all periods and developments.
As I have seen extracts from interviews on TV, recent ones apparently, I am confused as to his physical conditions now, has he recovered greatly, or less so from his spinal condition? It appears so,or were the TV images from some considerable time ago - prior to his illness. Does anyone know?? What are his latest developments ?
I was an Art student at UMass when Chuck Close taught there and remember him most clearly of all my teachers. If there is anyone else who shared that time, I'd like to hear from them.

I have a friend who is/was an international artist. He had an accident and has not worked since. The depression, anxiety and now no money have kept him from trying. Did Chuck go through this and how did he cope?
Chuck close had a horible illness.This illness happened in 1988, he suffered the collapse of a blood vessel in his spinal cord.
