Fiona Maddocks profiles painter Rose Wylie whose work will be on view at Turner Contemporary, Margate (January 12 - March 13) and at Chapter, Cardiff (February 13 – May 29).

Maddocks writes: "[Wylie's] eclectic inspirations include Almodovar and Tarantino, as well as Egyptian art, Pompeii, fashion, jewels, regalia, uniforms. She has also painted, less typically since pastoral is not her usual mode, the field with sheep beyond the garden in a work called Willow Tree (2015). 'I paint what I can see. This is what I see. It takes me a long time to do it, though people think it looks easy...' "
