Detail of Untitled.
Chantal Joffe's paintings are both hilarious, awkward and altogether amazing. Her show at Victoria Miro closes tomorrow. Hopefully her pieces will make their way westward so I can see them in person. I'd like to spend a few with her beauts. Most of the paintings you see here are of her older work. Be sure to check out the new group, click on the link above.
From the gallery's description of Joffe's work: "Possessing a humorous eye for everyday awkwardness and an enlivening facility with paint, Chantal Joffe brings a combination of insight and integrity to the genre of figurative art."
