JOYCE WIELAND "GIRL WITH BIRDS" 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 a male-dominated field.
Notably, she was the first female artist to have a solo exhibition at the National Gallery (Ottawa) in 1971 and the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto) in 1987.
All biographies of the artist have noted that she was an artist constantly sketching, doodling and drawing. One of her most common subjects was stylized, cartoon or idealized versions of her self or "woman".
Wieland was ardent environmentalist, possessing an awareness and sensitivity to ecological issues decades before they became widespread. This drawing possesses an interesting ambiguity; is this work in line with her ideology or is it more of a whimsical depiction evocative of Bjorn Wiinblad and folk fantasy.
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.
