Julian Opie at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery
Julian Opie's work is recognisable for its distinctive and refined graphic style, distilling the visual information of everyday life and reality to a universal language of symbols and signs. Like the architect of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, Sir John Soane, Opie reflects a wide range of diverse influences and art historical references within his work. The centrepiece of the show is the representation of a French village landscape in variety of media, inviting the visitor to circulate through imaginary spaces from multiple viewpoints.
At Pitzhanger in Ealing, West London, a major solo exhibition by Opie presents a new body of site specific works focusing on architecture, people and nature. Click through below to hear the artists discuss the influences behind the sculpture and animations on view.
