Created with a lenticular panel so as to form a moving image, Medieval Village #1 is a print by Julian Opie from 2019 and is typical of his simplified, graphic style. The print shows an image of a medieval castle with three spires and two arches, depicted in grey, black and white.
Throughout his career, Opie has produced many images that convey a sense of movement and dynamism in the form of static prints, paintings, sculpture, and moving images. Using photographs taken by the artist, each print is then manipulated and reduced to a matter of simplified shapes and signs to represent a figure. This particular series uses movement as a way to depict the three dimensional nature of the architecture, depicting the scene from different angles across each print.
Medieval Village #1 is indicative of Opie’s interest in using computer technology as a key component to his work, producing a moving image through lenticular printing. The Medieval Village series draws from a sculpture installation Medieval Village by Opie from 2018 that shows an almost life size three-dimensional rendering of the architecture. This sculptural piece, alongside the print series, is indicative of Opie’s desire to create work that captures how humans experience the world through physical encounters.
