Julian Opie on Landscape





‘I tried to see how it would be possible to draw a landscape that was not a landscape, but a period of landscape,’ Opie tells TateShots, as he describes the process of creating his large-scale wall painting: There are hills in the distance (c) 1996.

Opie’s work is on show in Looking at the View, a thematic display at Tate Britain that finds parallels in the way artists have framed our vision of the landscape over the last 300 years.
