Meaning & Analysis

Amidst a contemporary world saturated with information, Opie presents us with an image stripped down to the bare minimum components that make up a portrait. Using a standardised version of the human form, reminiscent of signs that can be found on lavatory doors, Ruth With Cigarette 3 is rendered in a decidedly depersonalised visual language. By presenting the figure without any facial features and a floating blank circle as a head, the figure appears more like a sign than an individual to be recognised.

Producing a computer generated image that uses flat, saturated colour and simplified shapes, Opie mimics the visual language of mass media and advertising. Ruth With Cigarette 3 also plays into this idea through depicting a stereotypical sexualised image of the ‘ideal’ woman as found in magazines, television and film. By rendering the figure without any facial features and a floating blank circle as a head, Opie forces the viewer to consider why they find this image so alluring and what constitutes attractiveness.
