"Matisse at Christmas" (A new exhibition at Chateau Joffe)
Matisse at Christmas An art exhibition by Harry Pye and Jasper Joffe about the mystery of great art. "Matisse at Christmas" runs from December 8 to 21. The PV is on Thursday 6th December "I'm for truth no matter who tells it." - Malcolm X “To miraculously hold together contradictions and incompatibility is a good definition of art.” Frank Auerbach Harry Pye and Jasper Joffe are both artists/curators who have been friends for more than ten years. Together they’ve worked on such projects as The Free Art Fair, The Rebel magazine, and 100 Mothers. Ekow Eshun visited Joffe et Pye’s show last year and on BBC Radio 4 's Saturday Review said of their work: "Intense feelings about love, loneliness and fear, anxiety, desire, hope and ambition all come into play in these paintings. Very powerful I thought. What could have been fey, arch or game playing was actually very warm."
