Beautiful exhibition, at Victoria Miro, of Chantal Joffe’s latest work where ‘celebrated writers keep company with the artist’s friends and family members’.

Free and expressive use of paint to create portraits that seem to capture a moment in the lives of individuals who look at us as much as we look at them.

The pastels at the back of the gallery have a luminous and abstract quality different to the paintings but equally as strong.
