Rose Wylie: Works on Paper
BERLIN • Galerie Michael Janssen, Berlin • 27 April - 1 June 2013
|English artist Rose Wylie (b. 1934) shows a selection of her drawings, collages and watercolours from the last ten years in parallel to her first major solo museum exhibition at Tate Britain. |
Wylie uses moments from films, memories and dreams to create metaphysical meditations on her own experience of the world. Her art is surprisingly accessible and immediate; she purposely chooses subjects that are shared and often combines seemingly naïve figuration with a lyrical sense of composition. Despite its childlike sensibility, it has a contextual depth that comes from experience. She first studied art as a young woman, but only began to seriously paint at the age of 47, after her children had grown and she had gone back to art school, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1981.
