Critical Review

This print captures the essence of Opie’s visual language which is characterised by his use of simplified shapes, thick outlines and flat, block colours. While Opie is best known for his drawings of faceless human figures, often captured walking through cities like London, New York and Melbourne, the artist has also produced artworks featuring animals, such as his Small Birds collection.

We Swam Amongst The Fishes - Version 2 belongs to Opie’s We Swam Amongst The Fishes collection which features a set of large-scale prints showing various species of fish swimming in open spaces of water. Opie created the artworks in this collection using digital photographs which he uploaded onto a computer and then edited, reducing the images to pure surface and line, in order to question how images are perceived and understood by the viewer.
