A major exhibition of new work by Julian Opie (b.1958), which distils and decodes the visual experience of our everyday life. New prints, sculptures, lenticular panels, and 3D models, made over the past year and a half, depict in the artist’s refined style built-up environments and the movement of people within them.
Opie’s ideas and reference points are drawn from the ancient past to the present. A view from a taxi window, a detail on a decorative railing, figures on a temple frieze or Greek vase, all serve as options and ideas that Opie updates with contemporary technology and materials. “I often look to temples and tombs, the high street and airport, to find the ideas and clues as to how best to make a visual experience powerful and clear.”
