Kristen as seen by Miles Aldridge and Chantal Joffe
Previously in the Gallery
14 March 2010 - 7 June 2010
In this rare artistic collaboration, the photographer Miles Aldridge invited contemporary painter Chantal Joffe to explore the theme of ‘the artist and model’. The resulting works in colour and black and white photographs, ink and pencil drawings and paintings in watercolour and oils create a fascinatingly obsessive and emotional study of one woman: the model Kristen McMenamy.
