Meaning & Analysis

Gary, Popstar is indicative of the way in which Opie likes to investigate both visual and verbal labels in his work, creating an extremely simplified visual language that appears as a series of signs. This print, along with many other portraits in the artist’s oeuvre, is titled with the sitters first name and occupation, emphasising the way that Opie sought to use as little information as possible to create a distinctly recognisable portrait. Opie’s portraits like this reveal the dehumanising effects of extreme digital simplification due to the sitter’s blank expression.

Despite the graphic reduction of Gary, Popstar, the individuality and likeness of the sitter is immediately apparent. With these portraits, Opie explores the idea that every person is unique in their defining features, even when reduced to a system of simplified signs and shapes.
