As one of Julian Opie’s more unusual works, The Gallery Staff series shows a set of prints each with five full-length figures in silhouette. The prints are rendered as screen prints on transparent glass to show the wall behind and set in a black wooden frame.

The figures in The Gallery Staff are rendered in almost photographic detail, most notably in their facial features seen in profile and details in their hands. Opie simplifies the shape of each figure by casting them in a dramatic silhouette, each shown exclusively in black with small breaks to show the transparent glass in a collar or necklace.
