“It’s such good snooping…. an exhibition by the artist Alice Instone offers a peek into the day-to-day lives of Cherie Blair, Emma Freud and Shami Chakrabarti in their own words…”as an artist I’m interested in mark making… they’re people’s real writing, scribbling; they’re more alive than a lot of drawings”. Yet she also thinks of them as tiny, candid portraits, a sort of opposite to the Instagram edit of someone’s life, with all the tedious, incidental details intact… Instone’s interest in the imbalance of domestic work… - a position borne out by my own unscientific study at the office - is a continuation of the artists’s long-held fascination with women and power.”
– Nancy Durrant, The Times
