Study for Ovid-Windfall
by Chris Ofili
Chris Ofili's new limited edition print Study for Ovid-Windfall (2012) is taken from a watercolour, charcoal and pastel drawing for his large painting Ovid-Windfall (2011-2012) which was exhibited at the National Gallery earlier this year. As with all the works in this series, Study for Ovid-Windfall is inspired by Ovid's epic poem Metamorphoses. The moonlit image depicts an ethereal male and female presence set in a mythical, watery landscape and is saturated with the intense, rich colours that surround the artist in his Trinidadian home. Ofili has described reading Ovid, as: "being infected by a world of magic, of shape-shifting, where anything was possible and all things were in flux. It was a world driven by sexual desire."
