In Catherine Opieís mid-career retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2008, the sheer range of her subject matter and corresponding stylistic approaches was dizzying. Her earliest work examines concepts of masculinity and femininity in lush color portraits of transgender individuals, cross-dressers, and pierced practitioners of sadomasochism in the subcultures of Los Angelesís gay and lesbian community. She has also made encompassing seascapes that feel like color field paintings, both meditative and visually stunning. Always informed by art historical traditions, her seemingly unrelated series are united by her ability to embrace and document her subjects in a way that is both personal and true.

Opie will lecture at 4 pm, Friday, February 7 in UK Student Center's Worsham Theater
