Milan, 18 November 2011 – 20 January 2012
Lisson Gallery Milan is delighted to announce an exhibition of recent work by renowned British artist, Julian Opie.
Julian Opie is one of the most significant artists of his generation. Drawing from influences as diverse as billboard signs, contemporary dance, classical portraiture and sculpture, and working in a variety of media, he reconstructs his impressions of our contemporary surroundings in a concise, pictorial language. Images, memories and sensory experiences from our encounters with the world are distilled into signs that in turn encourage the spectator to reflect on the nature of reality. The human figure – walking, dancing, resting, alone or in crowds – is a dominant motif in Opie’s work and his exhibition in Milan takes this theme as its focus.
