Elena and Cressie get ready for the party 5

Elena and Cressie get ready for the party 5, 2011 by Julian Opie is an original screenprint from a series of six screenprints on 4mm perspex with inkjet background sheets, presented in aluminum frames specified by the artist. This print is signed and numbered from the edition of 30.

Opie emerged as an influential figure in the British art scene of the 1980s, producing a series of painted metal sculptures that humorously combined loosely painted imagery with steel shapes. His themes have been described as “engagement with art history, use of new technology, obsession with the human body” and “work with one idea across different media”.
When asked to describe his approach, Opie said “I often feel that trying to make something realistic is the one criterion I can feel fairly sure of. Another one I sometimes use is, would I like to have it in my room? And I occasionally use the idea, if God allowed you to show Him one [portrait] to judge you by, would this really be it?”
