Chris Ofili: Poolside Magic

Chris Ofili: Poolside Magic
Library Shelf Location 18.OFIL
Publication Date 2017

Chris Ofili: Poolside Magic accompanies an exhibition by the artist comprising a suite of pastel, charcoal and watercolour works on paper, which are being shown together for the first time.

The series, in which a man in coat-tails serves a naked woman beside a swimming pool, riffs on themes of sexuality, mutability, magic and the occult, making reference to the vibrant and sensuous landscape and culture of Trinidad, where Chris Ofili lives and works.

The body of work is generously illustrated in a singer sewn, portfolio-style publication which includes archival source material alongside a textual poetic reflection.
