Julian Opie

Essays by Lucius Grisebach and Melitta Kliege.

What I would really like to do is make a painting and then walk into it, says British-born artist, Julian Opie. Opie has developed his images via the computer since the early 90s, yet reality has continued to remain his model. His objects of houses or automobiles--although reduced to their essential features and distinctly scaled down in size--are based on authentic buildings and cars. In this way, Opie transforms individual objects into universal signs. The inspiration for his repertoire of motifs, as well as his depictive style, he gets from life around him: public places, streets, airports, and shops, and also from a trip to Bali. In this publication, an essay by Opie himself gives first-hand insight into his artistic process, while a sequence of full-page illustrations, gives a comprehensive view of the different thematic facets in the artist's work.
