蘿斯・薇莉 Rose Wylie
Rose Wylie was born in Kent, 1934. She graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA, in 1981. Currently lives and works in her Kent cottage, producing extremely large paintings on unstretched, unprimed canvas, creating a kind of artlessness, in her signature loose, spontaneous style. She 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.Wylie’s canvases are confident and energetic, proposing new perspectives on the world and the plethora of images in our cultural memory.
