Rose Wylie (Bilingual edition)
A book of Rose Wylie’s playful large-format paintings
Rose Wylie has long been considered one of the highest-profile artists in British contemporary painting, even though-it's hard to believe-she achieved her international breakthrough just before her eightieth birthday. Out of a broad repertoire of motifs from pop culture, newspaper reports, and everyday life, the artist distills succinct scenes that humorously, yet critically, comment upon current events. In the process Wylie impressively demonstrates how lighthearted and natural painting today can be.
Following groundbreaking exhibitions at Tate Britain in 2013 and Serpentine Gallery in 2017, this publication accompanies the first Swiss solo exhibition for British painter Rose Wylie (born 1934), whose bold, playful paintings on unprimed canvas oscillate between surreal pop and wild punk, featuring motifs from popular culture.
