Rose Wylie has an interest in how images evolve and accumulate meaning – becoming familiar, iconic and part of the narrative of popular culture and wider history.

About

HISTORY PAINTING

Rose Wylie is best known for creating colourful, large-scale, figurative paintings that are smart, funny, and quietly political. These are usually made from memory and draw on a wide range of cultural references from history, fashion and cinema, to mythology, sport and literature. The thread linking these fields is her interest in how images evolve and accumulate meaning – becoming familiar, iconic and part of the narrative of popular culture and wider history.

At The Exchange, alongside works inspired by Quentin Tarantino films, and her memories of London during the Second World War, will be a selection of preparatory works on paper.

History Painting is a Plymouth Art Centre exhibition and curated by Ben Borthwick. The exhibition is being shown across both our galleries.
