Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic
This beautiful clothbound book records a unique collaboration between artist and weaver. ‘The Caged Bird’s Song’ is a spectacular large-scale tapestry designed by Chris Ofili for The Clothworkers’ Company, London, where it will hang after its exhibition at the National Gallery. The title is a nod to Maya Angelou, while the brilliant colour – blues, greens, turquoise, purple – channels Matisse, but Ofili – a Turner Prize winner – now stands as part of a long tradition of artists (many of them represented in the National Gallery) who have created tapestry designs, from Raphael to Rubens, and Goya to Picasso. The evolution of the design and the ambition of the artist are captured here; lavishly illustrated with details of the finished tapestry, Ofili’s sketches and watercolours, and the intricate process of weaving, carried out over three years by Dovecot Tapestry Studio, Edinburgh.
Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery from 26 April – 28 August 2017.
