Lot description
Silkscreen on Perspex and Digital Print on Paper in Polished Aluminium Frame.

This print comes from one of Opie's most recent series of works "Elena and Cressie Get Ready for the Party." Shifting away from Opie's typical portraits of well-known subjects such as Ruthie, this series portrays Elena and Cressie captured at different angles, with facial features that have an uncharacteristically distinguished and cartoon-like appearance.

Julian Opie, born in 1958, is a British artist and former trustee of the Tate Gallery in London, England. Opie uses computerized technology to reduce photographs into figurative reproductions characterized by flat areas of color, minimal detail and cartoon-like thick black lines. Influenced by Paul Caulfield and Michael Craig-Martin, Opie often transforms the computerized images into vinyl sculptures and installations in order to display the artwork in tangible form. Opie is known for the cover artwork of the British band Blur’s best of album. His digital imagery was also included in U2’s 2005 Vertigo World Tour.
