Published on the occasion of the exhibition held at David Zwirner, Hong Kong, January 10-February 22, 2020.
Includes bibliographical references.
Celebrated British painter Rose Wylie-whose works are at once tactile, cerebral, and humorous-often draws her influence from a wide range of popular culture. Here her newest body of work references memories from her own life and mimics the way memories evolve and change over time. Wylie's source material is culled from the vast visual world around her, ranging from sixteenth-century British estates to Serena Williams and the French Open. While initially these may seem random or aesthetically simplistic, through the nuanced use of humor, language, and compositional structure, Wylie creates wittily observed and subtly sophisticated meditations on the nature of memory, and visual representation itself, in line with the paintings she has become known for over the course of her career.
