British artist Rose Wylie creates paintings and drawings that on first glance appear aesthetically simplistic, not seeming to align with any recognisable style or movement, but on closer inspection are revealed to be wittily observed and subtly sophisticated meditations on the nature of visual representation itself. Her work has been the subject of renewed critical attention in recent years and can be found in prominent collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, including Tate, London.
