“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.”

Matisse at Christmas is no joke, although some of the work in it might make you smile.

Matisse at Christmas is not just a transcription project but then again – Jasper and Harry feel they’ve learned a lot by making work for this show.

The show includes art made by Jasper and Harry that was earnestly inspired by the great Henri Matisse.
They have tried to make work with the same freshness, beauty, and skill as Matisse but they have added their own signatures and trademarks.

Can you just make more work of an artist you like?

Does anyone know what they’re looking at?

Do you believe in Matisse at Christmas?
