The Magic Lamp is an extraordinary collaboration between artist and artist – the Booker prize-winning writer Ben Okri and the painter Rosemary Clunie. Together they have created a world, and peopled it with dreams.
A special exhibition at Abergavenny Museum, features fifteen of these original works by Rosemary Clunie, and each is accompanied by the beginning of the corresponding story written by Ben Okri. In addition there are two prints that were specially created as further collaborations between the artist and writer – each combining a painting and a complete story from The Magic Lamp, to create a new image.
The exhibition also includes a wonderful selection of some of Rosemary Clunie’s other work, both paintings and prints, textiles, ceramics, stained glass and pen and ink drawings, including some self-portraits and pen and ink portraits of Ben Okri.
