Julian Opie's solo exhibition opens at Pitzhanger Manor
24 June 2021
Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery in Ealing, West London, has opened a major solo exhibition by Julian Opie, presenting a new body of site specific works focusing on architecture, people and nature.
Opie is recognisable for his 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 Like the architect of Pitzhanger, Sir John Soane, Opie reflects a wide range of diverse influences and art historical references within his work.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.
The exhibition incorporates works outside, both in front of the Manor and in Walpole Park at the rear – the first exhibition programmed both in the gallery and outdoors.
The exhibition continues until 24 October 2021. Find further information via Pitzhanger.
