Waitress is an inkjet print on a lenticular acrylic panel released in 2014 in an edition of 50 by British Pop artist Julian Opie. Part of Opie’s Walking In London collection, the subject’s in this collection are taken from people Opie saw walking the streets of London. Their features and distinguishable characteristics are reduced to simplified forms, yet their individuality skillfully remains.
Opie captures his subjects in full-length as they are mid stride, their surroundings omitted in favour of a solid colour background. Hence, any visual contextual information is absent. Here, Opie’s subject has her head down as she reads a book, a red bag slung over her shoulder. By retaining details such as these, the subjects are uniquely distinguishable. When taken as a whole, the Walking In London collection captures the variety of personalities and people that one might encounter strolling through London.
