Rose Wylie


Rose Wylie finds visual material for her large-scale paintings in a wide range of sources: from art history, cinema and comic books, to daily observations, news and celebrity stories. Her images are often painted through the filter of her memory, using text to anchor recollections and facts and editing slippages in the compositions by overlaying new pieces of canvas, like a collage.

Imbued with wit and economy of line Wylie’s canvases are confident and energetic, proposing new perspectives on the world and the plethora of images in our cultural memory.

Published to accompany her first institutional solo exhibition in London, Rose Wylie: Quack Quack, 30 Nov 2017 – 4 Feb 2018, Serpentine Sackler, Serpentine Galleries, London.
