October 2010 – Belgravia Gallery
London artist, Trish Wylie, is making a name for herself with her painterly explorations of the cinematic genre. Her previoiusly abstract leanings took a curious turn when her love of painting and film merged to form a series of large and colourful canvas works. In her series of ‘Western’ paintings, the leading stars of classic Western film take on an enigmatic yet iconic presence. As Robin Baker, Curator of the BFI Media Teque, quoted, “These paintings melt into the films”.

Trish Wylie’s work was shortlisted for the John Moores prize in 2006 and  featured in The Best of the West show at the Study Gallery in Poole, alongside John Makepeace and Brian Rice.
