Brodsky Center at PAFA

Gallery description

The mission of the Brodsky Center at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is to enable artists to create new work in print and paper, and promote the printed image and paper as central to contemporary art practice. Artists are invited to collaborate with the Brodsky Center's master printers and master papermakers. These experts and innovators make it possible for artists to translate their vision into media that may be new to them. Since our founding in 1986, our mission continues to focus on new and underrepresented narratives by American and international artists from diverse backgrounds and women artists. Several of our five hundred editions made with over four hundred artists are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Baltimore Museum of Art, The Newark Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris, Stadtmuseum Berlin, and PAFA, among other museums, and many private collections.

Two decades ago, Ofili broke new ground with multi-layered paintings, whose monumental physicality encompasses the viewer’s body in space with decorative exuberance around imagery probing the subsistence of African culture in postcolonial Great Britain. The artist moved to Trinidad in 2005. His new environment inspired a shift in his work: “I’ve found that the night and twilight here enhances the imagination… It’s unlit, so you’re relying on the light of the moon and sensitivity of the eyes. It’s a different level of consciousness that is less familiar to me, and stimulating through a degree of fear and mystery.” (Chris Ofili, Tate Etc., Spring 2010). In After the Dance, Ofili hints at the moment following the one we see depicted. Dark hues of blue give shape to sinuous natural and human forms slowly revealing themselves in a seamless flow of light reflections.
