Critical Review

Opie was commissioned to create this series by Artwise to devise an exciting and original way of showcasing the Honda F1 team to engage audiences beyond the racetrack. Originally displayed as a 60-metre-long installation, Opie was selected to be part of this project due to his ongoing obsession with movement and car culture as subject matter.

Through his ‘depersonalised’ visual language, Opie’s Imagine You Are Driving (Fast) is compelling in its depiction of movement and dynamism through the use of static images that are highly simplified. In juxtaposing the portrait with the Grand Prix track, the viewer is invited to take on the perspective of the sitter and imagine a journey of their own.
