Respect to Chris Ofili!

I saw Chris Ofili for the first time when he was shortlisted for the Turner Prize. I still find it thrilling that it's creatively acceptable to like this guy who, in my opinion is more about visions of beauty and thought than about revolutionary concepts. Today my favourite room showed his twilight scenes: moments of moving through the jungle in the dark, the dark blue shadows and rustles of other people, leaves and animals crossing your path...

Anyway, watch this space, I feel like making an Ofili-esque extravaganza of my own!
