JOYCE WIELAND "LADY DIRECTOR 2" DRAWING, 1960s
Joyce Wieland (1931-1998) is one of the most accomplished and versatile Canadian artists. She achieved a level of commercial and critical attention in her lifetime that was exceptional for a woman in her era.
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.
In the mid 1960's Wieland began to embrace more representational and narrative elements in her work. Inspired by comic books, and her background in film Wieland drew extensively often directly referencing her childhood, professional journey, sexuality and of course her own portrait.
Images of female directors are especially poignant if one considers Wieland's history. While she was a prolific and ambitious (although often frustrated) artist during the 1960's, during most of the 1970's her energies were consumed by filmmaking - specifically her feature length picture "The Far Shore".
This intimate and charming drawing is evocative of Wieland's style and tone. It sends an enduring message; if images and stories are not being created that reflect one's experiences, the artist must produce and share them.
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.
