A brush with... Chantal Joffe

Season 1, Ep. 3

Ben Luke talks to Chantal Joffe about the cultural experiences that have had an impact on her life and work. They discuss the shift in her work from early paintings based on pornography to recent depictions of herself and her daughter; they explore the writers and music that she returns to for inspiration, the museums she regularly visits and the daily rituals of her studio life. Above all, they talk about art in depth, and the inspiration of artists as diverse as Piero della Francesca, Edgar Degas, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Chaim Soutine, Maria Lassnig and David Wojnarowicz.
