Viewing Chris Ofili: The Seven Deadly Sins

In the quiet and reflective halls of Victoria Miro in Islington, experience the Chris Ofili’s latest body of work, ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’. Seven paintings created over six years, the works explore the notion and complexities of ‘sin’. Raised as a Roman Catholic, Ofili had long wanted to work through the themes and associations surrounding sin, seeing it as the generating principle for kick-starting the process of self-interrogation and knowledge. For Ofili, sin and reflection go hand in hand and, although not autobiographical, the series represents a spectrum of transgressive behaviours, with each painting taking a slightly different approach where one sin might become more dominant.
For Ofili, it felt like the right subject: for the time and for these times.’ Be transported into a spiritual realm where humans and mythical creatures coexist amidst magnetic forces of attraction and disgust and sit in the silence of introspection as Ofili delves into notions of the human condition. With an angel on one shoulder and maybe a little devil on the other, come and play in ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’.
