Chris Ofili

I have posted on Chris Ofilis work before buuuuut...last night I saw this great documentary on his work, it was mainly about this exhibition he was installing at the British Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2003.He talked through the idea process through to its realisation. Twas awesome.....The space where his paintings were hanging was covered with carefully cut coloured glass. Each bit of glass was carefully placed to form an elaborate roof. The walls were clad in felt and the floor was carpeted to enhance the whole experience of the space. I find Chris Ofilis work a bit hit or miss but I thought this exhibition looked great.
