Her images are often painted through the filter of her memory, using text to anchor recollections and facts and editing slippages in the compositions by overlaying new pieces of canvas, like a collage. Imbued with wit and economy of line Wylie’s canvases are confident and energetic, proposing new perspectives on the world and the plethora of images in our cultural memory. This will be Wylie’s first institutional solo exhibition in London.
