    About The Work

    Julian Opie’s work, with its signature graphic line and use of digital media, encompasses sculpture, painting, printmaking and installation. Says the artist of this edition, “I grew up with English art of the post-war St. Ives School, artists such as Nicholson, Moore and Hepworth. I find myself drawn to a lot of the same subject matter. As with lyrics, it’s important to choose the right subject matter but they should not be seen as the point of the song, they allow a certain narrative and create a particular mood. The St. Ives mood is plain, modest and innocent, often lovely and occasionally cloying. I find myself contrasting this longing, wide-eyed, cool and natural quality with elements of our urban, post-industrial, somewhat ruined world.”
