SELECTED WORKS BY Chantal Joffe

Black Camisole
Chantal Joffe
Black Camisole

2004

Oil on board

305 x 124 cm
Hung around the gallery like banners, her visceral ten-foot tall portraits of women from the fashion pages are like a degenerate version of social realism.
Mother and Child I
Chantal Joffe
Mother and Child I

2005

Oil on board

304 x 123 cm
Although the models are undoubtedly human, with cares and woes, more anodyne characteristics and expressions are imposed by stylists and photographers. Joffe seems to resurrect these women as real people, the paint reanimating faces that were previously mask-like.
Mother and Child II
Chantal Joffe
Mother and Child II

2005

Oil on board

244 x 183 cm
The process of painting was very physical, requiring scaffolding and stamina. Unlike easel paintings, they could not easily be stepped back from to survey progress. As a result, the paint seems to have had as much control over the outcome as the artist; often a drip or a brushstroke creates a dynamic that could never have been premeditated.
Walking Woman
Chantal Joffe
Walking Woman

2004

Oil on board

305 x 124 cm
Chantal Joffe has a distinctive style of painting which offers an uncompromising sense of power, complexity and impetus to the female figures she portrays.
Woman With Flowers
Chantal Joffe
Woman With Flowers

2004

Oil on board

305 x 124 cm
Chantal Joffe uses her works to emphasize the psychological relations of her characters to one another and to the viewer.
Snowy Car

2004

Oil on board

305 x 124 cm
The direct and liquid painting style that Chantal Joffe uses has the effect of filling her subjects with personality. The images possess an alarming humour; highly enjoyable and strangely provoking.
