Union Teesdale Street
11 May - 13 July
Union Gallery is pleased to present Henry, Thomas, Keith & Jack, an exhibition of new works by Rose Wylie. Union will be showing recent large-scale paintings and drawings by the artist from 2012 and 2013. The exhibition will run concurrently with Focus: Rose Wylie - a solo exhibition at Tate Britain opening in May and Work on Paper, Michael Janssen Gallery, Berlin.
Rose Wylie’s constant fascination with visual culture and ‘the act of looking’ is manifest in the paintings and comparative drawings in this exhibition. Her works are populated by accessible, shared figures and text from film, art history and the everyday; magnified and brought to the fore in a montage of remembered images and references. In this process, Wylie pares her perceptions of the world down to their essence, projecting them back onto her canvases in painterly revision.
The four large-scale paintings in this exhibition form part of Wylie’s ongoing Film Notes series and a body of work surrounding the notion of homage or ‘respect to’. The four men of the exhibition’s title are loosely linked by happenstance and the excitement of chance, something that informs much of the artist’s practice.
UNION Teesdale Street opened in Bethnal Green, East London in late 2006 and is a second space to UNION Ewer Street situated in South London. Occupying a former shop space, UNION Teesdale Street effectively offers a programme of five to six small-scale exhibitions by younger artists throughout the year, and runs consecutively with the Ewer Street programme. The Teesdale Street programme is further complimented by regular free events and talks, which focus on the current gallery exhibition.

Gourmet San is most easily identified by the throng of expectant diners queuing outside. So what's the big draw? Part of the answer can be had looking through the window - succulent chilli crab and sizzling fish whizzing between kitchen and happy diners; the rest of it, in the form of friendly and efficient service, comes once you get through the door. Gourmet San's predominantly Chinese clientele are keen on the authentic Szechuan menu, and we suggest you follow their lead.
