Focusing on relatives, friends and herself in scenes of leisure and domestic life, Joffe brings images robustly to life using sticks of coloured pastel on fine-toothed paper. The exhibition brings together new and recent pastels by Chantal Joffe. This is the first exhibition by the artist comprising solely of pastel works on paper. It marks a return to Venice for Joffe who, between 1999 and 2011, exhibited four times at Galleria Il Capricorno.
