* 로즈 와일리 展 - 예술의 전당 소개문 발췌
The first book to trace the extraordinary career of painter Rose Wylie,
whose work prompted critic Jonathan Jones to state: 'The freedom and
courage of Rose Wylie shows a way forward for painting in this century'
Rose Wylie's international exhibitions programme includes recent solo
shows in New York, Germany, Moscow, Norway, Seoul, and at CAC
Malaga. In the UK she has enjoyed major exhibitions at Tate Britain and
the Serpentine Gallery as well as being featured in the RA Summer
Exhibition 2018 with an installation along Bond St
Tate curator Clarrie Wallis's text draws out the central themes running
through Wylie's paintings, from the way in which drawing informs her
work to the presence of narrative, language and the figure in her paintings
Rose Wylie RA (b.1934) trained as an artist in the 1950s, but it was her
re-engagement with painting in the early 1980s, after a period spent
raising a family, that marked the beginning of a remarkable career that
continues to evolve and impress. This monograph, the first of its kind,
follows Wylie's fascinating artistic journey, celebrating her achievements
while also examining her current practice.
Rose Wylie's large-scale paintings are inspired by a wide range of visual
culture. Her subject-matter ranges from contemporary Egyptian Hajj
wall paintings and Persian miniatures to films, news stories, celebrity
gossip and her observation of daily life. Often working from memory, she
distills her subjects into succinct observations, using text to give
additional emphasis to her recollections. In weaving together imagery
from different sources with personal elements, Wylie's paintings offer a
direct and wry commentary on contemporary culture. Her pictures
refuse judgment but reveal a concern with the everyday that makes
visible its enigmatic core.
Drawing on a series of extended interviews with the artist, Clarrie Wallis
unpicks the complexities of Wylie's visual language, so providing an
important contribution to our understanding and appreciation of a
significant and increasingly celebrated figure in contemporary British art.
