Notes: Drawing on the visual language of contemporary life, the Australian Statuette series is a ‘classic Opie’ work, created in his instantly recognizable signature style defined by a stripped-down vocabulary of schematic lines and blocks of color.

By breaking the human body in motion down to a few simple lines, the series explores the ways in which reality can be represented and reflected.

The Artist

Julian Opie

London born Julian Opie is a renowned visual artist who developed under the tutelage of conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin at Goldsmiths, University of London. He burst on to the British art scene during the 1980s with a series of painted metal sculptures and is known as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Opie’s work is characteristically striking, combining the minimalism of Pop Art with digital alteration. He uses computer technology to create graphic portraits from photographs, employing simple colours and minimal detail to create a piece that is both abstract but still recognisable. He employs a similar approach to the depiction of books, buildings and landscapes, using a range of media including painted metal, vinyl, LED lights and inkjet on canvas. Because his work has such a contemporary feel, it lends itself to popular culture.
