The British painter Chantal Joffe is acclaimed for her intimate snapshots of domestic life, family and friends. In this exhibition, co-curated by the artist, portraits of Joffe’s daughter – dating from shortly after her birth to recent depictions of Esme at the age of 16, painted during lockdown – are displayed alongside a number of self-portraits, and a series depicting Esme’s care of her mother during a traumatic illness. Together, they capture the shifts and developments in the relationship between mother and daughter. Find out more from the Arnolfini’s website; you can also read Harriet Baker’s interview with Joffe from the May 2018 issue of Apollo here.
