Opie has made a series of drawings of friends and acquaintances on the computer which have been output as paintings, sculptures, wallpaper, film and concrete casts.
”People are quite self conscious when I photograph them, which is embarrassing in the photo but helps to give life and presence to a painting. When I’m drawing I feel like everyone’s face is fabulous. I don’t know if this is also true of bodies. I try to make a universal symbol for each individual I draw.”
The people depicted here are the artists Fiona Banner and Richard Patterson.
