through his work, julian opie has long been examining how we, as viewers, see things. his #portraits, #sculptures, and #reliefs provide a way of depicting the world in which he balances the nuanced styles of #westernart with #graphic traditions of #caricature, illustration, and even cartoon. his radical approach, which for a period involved offering his works for sale through a catalogue, has caused him to perfect the translation of person and object to art: from reality to artifice. opie's are brilliantly constructed images, shaped and honed, whether sketched in metal, or crafted through computer software.
