Artist Alert: Chantal Joffe
“I really love painting women. Their bodies, their clothes – it all interests me,” said London-based artist Chantal Joffe in an interview with Stella McCartney. Fashion photography then, which Joffe often bases her work from, seems a perfect fit. Joffe utilizes images from magazines, except she transforms each woman into a more abstracted and warped version of herself, making her ultimately more interesting we believe.
