victoriamirogalleryToday: artist Chantal Joffe is in conversation with Dr. Ginny Button at the Falmouth School of Art. Joffe’s figurative paintings – both large and small scale – usual depict women or girls, from catwalk models, porn actresses and literary heroines to mothers, children and loved ones. Her paintings question expectations of what a feminist art might be, often pointing to how appearances are constructed – whether in a fashion magazine or the family album – and to the choreography of display. Sometimes shown in groups but recently in iconic portraits, her images of women draw loosely on a range of sources such as photographs, magazines and even reflections in the mirror, using distortion to make her subjects seem more real. Wed 15 Feb, 5-6:30pm, free and open to the public. Book at http://www.falmouth.ac.uk/fsa-speakers/chantal-joffe-ginny-button⠀
