Rose Wylie on Storytelling and Painting Big

From the Queen of Sheba to John Terry, welcome to the work of Rose Wylie

Painter Rose Wylie takes inspiration for her paintings from film, literature and even the scraps of newspaper articles on her studio floor.

Often arranging her large-scale paintings in book formation, so that they take on the angles found at the corner of a room, Wylie’s use of familiar imagery allows her to tell stories and explore themes of representation in narratives already in the public domain.
