"I don't like slick, I don't like clever" says Rose Wylie in an interview with MK Palomar.
Commenting on Wylie's habit of writing in her art, Palomar notes: "It's interesting coz alot of times...when people paint words on canvases... it's telling you something... and yet somehow you're not, you're subverting that even?"
Wylie replies: "I don't like knowledge being shoved on by quoting Plato or Homer. I think it's pathetic. If the painting doesn't work without shoving Homer on it, then you should make the painting better"
