Chris Ofili Auction Price Results

Who is Chris Ofili?
(born 1968 Manchester, England) British painter. A highly innovative yet controversial contemporary artist, Chris Ofili studied at the Tameside College of Technology from 1987-88, the Chelsea School of Art from 1988-1991, and the Royal College of Art from 1991-1993, where he received a MA in fine art. In 1992 he won a scholarship to travel to Zimbabwe; the trip made a lasting impact on his art. Ofili’s works deal with black identity and culture. He paints in bright colors with various materials incorporated into his works, including his most unique material elephant dung. Ofili is most well known for his work The Holy Virgin Mary that appeared in the 1997 exhibition Sensation and caused an uproar particularly among Catholics for its use of dung and pornographic imagery when the exhibition moved to the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Since then, his career has flourished; Ofili continues to receive much success; in 1998 he won the Tate Gallery’s Turner Prize and by 2000 his work was included in the permanent collections of the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. In 2000 and 2002 he had solo exhibits at the Victoria Miro Gallery in London and in 2003 Ofili was featured in the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

CHRIS OFILI (Manchester, 1968). Untitled, 1997. Watercolor and pencil on paper.

Lot 39: CHRIS OFILI (Manchester, 1968). Untitled, 1997. Watercolor and pencil on paper.

Auction Date: Jan 21, 2021

Estimate: €9,000 - €10,000

Description: "CHRIS OFILI (Manchester, 1968). Untitled, 1997. Watercolor and pencil on paper. Measurements: 24 x 15.5 cm; 40 x 30 cm (frame). Chris Ofili creates intricate and kaleidoscopic paintings and works on paper fusing abstraction and figuration. Ofili rose to fame in the 1990s for his complex and fun paintings, adorned with a distinctive blend of resin, gloss and collage. His vibrant, symbolic and often mysterious works are based on the lush landscapes and local traditions of the island of Trinidad, where he has lived since 2005. He employs a diverse range of aesthetic and cultural sources, including cave paintings from Zimbabwe, blaxploitation films, Ovid's Metamorphosis and modernist painting. Ofili's work investigates the intersection of desire, identity and representation. Born in 1968 in Manchester, England, Ofili received his BFA from the Chelsea School of Art, London in 1991 and his MFA from the Royal College of Art, London in 1993. In 2005, the artist joined David Zwirner, where he has had four solo exhibitions at the gallery in New York. The Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami, for the opening of its new building, commissioned Ofili's work for a long-term installation, which was on view from 2017 to 2019. In 2017, the National Gallery in London presented "Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic," which marked the first time the artist worked in the medium of tapestry. That same year, Ofili created a site-specific artwork, incorporating a mural, for Marisol, the recently redesigned restaurant at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. In 2015, a group of Ofili's paintings was included in "All The World's Futures," the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, curated by Okwui Enwezor. The artist's work has been the subject of solo exhibitions around the world, including "Chris Ofili: Night and Day," the first major solo exhibition of the artist's work in a museum in the United States. The show was organized by the New Museum in New York, where it was first presented in 2014, and traveled to the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado in 2015. Other solo exhibitions have taken place at the Arts Club of Chicago (2010); Tate Britain, London (2010 and 2005); kestnergesellschaft, Hanover (2006); The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York (2005); and the British Pavilion, 50th Venice Biennale, Venice (2003). In 2017, Ofili was awarded the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen, and in 1998 he received the prestigious Turner Prize. The artist's works are represented in leading international collections such as the British Museum, London; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Tate Gallery, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota....

Chris Ofili (British, born 1968) Silver Moon, 2005

Lot 30: Chris Ofili (British, born 1968) Silver Moon, 2005

Auction Date: May 15, 2019

Estimate: $150,000 - $200,000

Description: Chris Ofili (British, born 1968)
Silver Moon, 2005 stamped 'Chris Ofili' (to the base)paint on bronze with nickel plating79 1/8 x 53 15/16 x 68 7/8 in. 201 x 137 x 175 cm. This work was executed in 2005, and is the artist's proof from an edition of three plus one artist's proof.

Provenance: Contemporary Fine Arts Gallery, Berlin Acquired directly from the above by the present ownerExhibitedBerlin, Contemporary Fine Arts Gallery, The Blue Rider, 19 November-23 December 2005, pp. 20-24, illustrated in colorMoscow, Gary Tatintsian Gallery Inc., Hunky Dory, 2 March-20 April 2007, p. 49, illustrated in colorThought provoking and provocative, Chris Ofili's Silver Moon, 2005, is a singular take on the artist's view on the human condition and personal relationships. Fitting into a centuries long exploration of the subject matter, the sculpture is a continuation of themes, motifs and mediums that would define Ofili's career, not without controversy, and see his works now included in some of the most significant museums in the world. Defecation is a consistent theme of Ofili's practice, and in turn his works have consistently courted controversy. The display of the artist's The Holy Virgin Mary, 1996, at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, became the subject of litigation between the city and the museum, due in large part to the artist's use of elephant dung as a sculptural medium in order to depict the mother of Christ. The work is now considered one of the greatest and most influential of the artist's output. Following its sale in 2015 for a seven-figure sum, the work was donated by the esteemed collectors Steven and Alexandra Cohen to the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Despite its contentiousness, excrement continues to be a crucial part of Ofili's works. Here, the act itself is undertaken by a figure the artist titles 'Silver Moon', evoking associations with fertility, given its ability to foster growth in plants and produce. Furthermore, Ofili took inspiration from the Catalan figure 'El Caganer' who regularly appears in Nativity Scenes in the region whilst in the midst of relieving himself. The debate around this subject matter has become a significant element of these works, almost adding to their mystique. Their subject is disconcerting, some feel blasphemous, but is familiar and entirely universal. In its original display, Silver Moon, was displayed with a partner Blue Moon, each figure facing each other as the both undertake a scatological act. Though shocking and intimate in subject matter, the shock is something of the point, asking us to question why, as an act that it is universal to the human existence, does this continue to surprise us. The work also reminds us how deeply, intimately and intensely relationships can grow to become. Works with a scatological subject matter are not outliers in the history of art. Hieronymus Bosch's legendary Garden of Earthly Delights, 1503-1515, sees a figure sat atop a throne-like toilet whilst Salvador Dali's Lugubrious Game, 1929, delves into the psychological confusion and complexity associated with defecation. Piero Manzoni's Merda d'artista, 1961, saw the artist preserve his own excrement as a commentary on artistic production and human functions, whilst also furthering the Duchampian theory of the 'ready-made'. In Contemporary Art, Ofili is joined by Wim Delvoye whose installation Cloaca, 2009, turns food to waste, which is then bottled for sale. Meanwhile, Maurizio Cattelan's America, 2016, a gold toilet, was installed in a lavatory at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of Art, New York, where hundreds of thousands of visitors relieved themselves throughout the course of its installation. Born in Manchester, Chris Ofili was part of the infamous group the Young British Artists that rose out of mid-1990s Britain and would go on to disrupt the art world globally. After inclusion in Charles Saatchi's Sensation exhibition in 1997, Ofili would be recognized by winning the Turner Prize making him the first black artist to do so and the first painter to win the accolade in over a decade. In 2003 he was the representative for the British Pavilion at that year's Venice Biennale. Ofili has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world at venues including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, The National Gallery, London, the New Museum, New York and the Tate Britain, London. His works are held in major public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Gallery, London, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
