ARCHIVE: Chris Ofili / Art In America / January 2000

In January 2000, a detail of Chris Ofili's 1999 painting Third Eye Vision (comprised of acrylic, collage, glitter, resin, map pins and elephant dung on canvas) vaingloriously stretched across the cover of Art In America magazine. In the accompanying article "Ofili's Glittering Icons" art critic Lynn MacRitchie wrote: "Ofili works his themes over and over again. In the process, the street-smart references he so much enjoys sampling from urban culture are being gradually incorporated into a more formal vocabulary which seems to be taking the work forward into its next phase."
