If you go to an exhibition, you might have thought about how to appreciate the art. Perhaps you might have wondered what the painting is trying to tell you. Rose Wylie explains that her work doesn’t have a special message, but the painting is the message itself. At the age of 86, her brushstrokes reflect her life. Stepping in to the exhibition, the mega-sized work hanging on the walls and ceiling amuses the eye. Age seems to be just a number for Wylie. Next, she expresses the excitement and emotions she felt while watching movies. We can take a peek at the visual language that she wanted to create through her work. While there are works inspired by prominent directors such as Quentin Tarantino, they are also inspired by a small spider in the bathroom, which is reborn as her own creature when it runs through her hands. She also uses a wide range of materials to make it easy and friendly for many people to approach her work. Her painting featuring Son Heung-min is a point you don’t want to miss. Rose Wylie’s work is like a picture diary with small but precious moments of life. It's simple but lucid, free, and warm.
