History Painting: Rose Wylie
Plymouth Arts Centre and The Gallery at Plymouth College Of Art present a multisite exhibition by internationally renowned painter Rose Wylie. As part of History Painting, Wylie presents a cycle of new work about the Mayflower voyage, made between 2015-17 for this exhibition. These paintings draw on the artist’s memories of first learning about the pilgrims as a young child in the 1930s, and reflect on how interpretations of history change across the ages.
Plymouth Arts Centre present Wylie’s new Mayflower paintings alongside themes the artist has painted for many years that resonate with Plymouth’s history, including the Tudor period, the Blitz, and as a seaside resort. There will also be a selection of Rose’s ‘film notes’ paintings in reference to Plymouth Arts Centre’s 70 year history as a gallery and cinema.
