Rose Wylie is a Contemporary painter whose work only began to receive attention and critical acclaim late in her life. Wylie works on large-scale canvases using cartoonish, child-like imagery rendered in expressive marks, sometimes inspired by art history or pop culture such as movies and television. Her work is frequently compared to Philip Guston.
Wylie went to Folkestone and Dover School of Art, 1952 – 1956 and much later attained a post-graduate degree in Painting from the Royal Academy Schools London, 1979 –1981.
In 2010 she was selected as single UK representative in the Women To Watch exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC, USA. Previous group exhibitions include Rose Wylie Evan Holloway at The Approach, London (2011) and East International (2004, selected by Neo Rauch and Gerd Harry Lybke). Previous solo exhibitions include Picture on the Wall at Michael Janssen Gallery, Berlin (2011), What with What at Thomas Erben Gallery, New York (2010), and Film Notes at Union Gallery, London (2010). In 2011 she was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn award.
