Serpentine Sackler Gallery
30 November 2017 – 11 February 2018

Rose Wylie (born 1934, UK) 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. This will be Wylie’s first institutional solo exhibition in London.
