JOYCE WIELAND "LOVERS" DRAWING
Joyce Wieland (1931-1998) is one of the most accomplished and versatile Canadian artists. She achieved a level of commercial and critical success in her lifetime that was exceptional for a woman in her era in a male-dominated field.
Wieland established new benchmarks for what was possible for a female artist to achieve.
Notably, she was the first female artist to have a solo exhibition at the National Gallery (Ottawa) in 1971.
Many of her innovative creations predate similar works by female artists of the late 20th century - Tracey Emin's crotchet works are one of several examples.
Wieland explored the role of women, the body, nationalism and relationships through a wide variety of media. She was a prolific illustrator and created many intimate works on paper - collectors today are eagerly seeking out these lovely and striking artworks.
This is a paradigm of her style and her versatility.
Joyce Wieland works can be found in numerous public collections across Canada including the National Gallery, Museum London and the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto) to mention a few.
