See our Sunley Gallery filled with paintings for the first time, as we showcase Kent-based artist Rose Wylie. Inspiration for Wylie’s bold and large-scale paintings take ranges from early Renaissance painting and contemporary Egyptian Hajj painting and remembered images from films.

Rose Wylie was born in Kent, where she still lives and works. She studied at Folkestone and Dover School of Art (1952-6) and the Royal College of Art, London (1979-81) and now, in her early eighties, is enjoying renewed interest in her work in the UK and internationally with recent exhibitions at the Jerwood, Hastings (2012) and Tate Britain (BP Spotlight, 2013), as well as winning the prestigious John Moores painting prize in 2014. In 2010, Wylie was described by Germaine Greer as ‘Britain’s hottest new artist’.

The exhibition is supported by Union Gallery.
