Chantal Joffe created this exuberant image of a young girl holding a pencil in tribute to the American portrait painter, Alice Neel. Joffe’s celebrated figure paintings feature young women whose lithe outlines pulsate within lush, Eduard Munch-like interiors and cityscapes. This lyrical portrayal of a child, on the verge of tumbling over, combines pastoral innocence and new life with a hint of mischief.
Joffe has exhibited widely in public and private galleries in the USA, Europe and in the UK including The British School at Rome; Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York; the Tate Liverpool and ICA London and as part of the John Moores Painting Prize 22 at The Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
Joffe is represented by Victoria Miro Gallery, London. Her work is part of the following collections; Arts Council England, Saatchi, Tate, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts.
