SUZANNE WALKING OUTSIDE THE HUGH LANE GALLERY

SUZANNE WALKING OUTSIDE THE HUGH LANE GALLERY

SUZANNE WAS RELOCATED FROM O’CONNELL STREET IN 2008 TO THE HUGH LANE GALLERY AT NORTH PARNELL SQUARE - ARTIST - JULIAN OPIE

I really do like ’Suzanne Walking’ by Julian Opie.


Back in 2008 four of Opie’s animated figures - Sara, Julian, Jack and Suzanne – were displayed walking on O’Connell Street in the direction of Parnell Square where Sara danced outside the Gallery. While moving signs and images are familiar in all cities and towns these works, inspired by popular culture, went beyond the obvious with a compelling contemporary aesthetic.


Julian Opie is widely recognised as one of the pre-eminent artists working with public sculpture today. His images are elemental in appearance though amongst the most complex and sophisticated in contemporary art practice. His highly stylised work involves the reduction of photographs or short films into figurative reproductions. His unique portraiture is characterised by black outlines with flat areas of colour and details are reduced to his linear elemental style that captures the subject’s entire personality.
