Synopsis: Chris Ofili's intricately constructed works, combining beadlike dots of paint, collaged images from popular media, and elephant dung, create a unique iconography that marries African artistic and ritual practices with Western art historical traditions and contemporary hip-hop culture. This beautifully designed book, made in close collaboration with the artist, is the first to examine Ofili's artistic development and surveys his work in watercolor, graphite drawing, and sculpture. Literary and historical parallels from a formidable list of contributors explore the ways through which the artist has grasped his times with a palpable sense of history.

Product Description: Ofili's paintings are intensely laboured, with intricate details of dots of acrylic and oil paint, collaged images, glitter and map pins, forming vast patterns sunk into layers of glossy resin. This monograph surveys the career of Ofili.

Book Description Auf komplizierte Art und Weise kombiniert Chris Ofili, britischer Künstler mit afrikanischen Wurzeln, in seinen Gemälden Elemente afrikanischer Volkskunst mit den Traditionen westlicher Kunst und Versatzstücken der Hip Hop Kultur. Dies tut er seit Ende der 1990er Jahre so erfolgreich, dass es seine Werke bis in so bedeutende Sammlungen wie die der Tate Modern oder des MoMA geschafft haben. Dieser wunderschön gestaltete Band entstand in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Künstler und bietet eine Übersicht über sein bisheriges Oeuvre an Aquarellen, Grafit-Zeichnungen und Skulpturen. Mit Texten von Okwui Enzewor, Peter Doig, Kara Walker u.a. (Text englisch) 26 x 32 cm, 267 Seiten, 221 meist ganzseitige Farbtafeln, Leinen. Bookseller Inventory # 548014
