Rose Wylie – Self Portrait with Shut Mouth

Rose Wylie - Self Portrait with Shut Mouth - 2017

Rose Wylie - Self Portrait with Shut Mouth - 2017On the occasion of her exhibition Quack Quack at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Rose Wylie has created a second Limited Edition print titled Self Portrait with Shut Mouth. Wylie often combines text within her work to anchor facts and memories and here, she has included her initials ‘RW’ to indicate the identity of the sitter. The closely cropped composition is informed, like many of Wylie’s paintings, by cinematography. This work sits in contrast to the image of the artist’s open mouth about to eat a chocolate biscuit in her iconic painting Choco Leibniz (2006).
