Hastings; Chantal Joffe Exhibition announced


31/1/2015- 12/4/2015

A major exhibition of works by Chantal Joffe, whose powerful portraits of women and children combine insight, integrity and humour. Joffe paints with expressive fluidity, using large brush-strokes and distortions to capture personality and a sense of movement.

Co-curated by Rose Wylie, John Moores Prize winner 2014 and inaugral Jerwood Gallery painter, this exhibition will celebrate Joffe's strong connections to Hastings and St Leonards, with many portraits capturing Hastings beach.
