About

Joyce Wieland (1931-1998) was one of the most accomplished and versatile Canadian artists of the 20th century. Emerging on the Toronto art scene in the early 1960s, throughout her career Wieland would explore the role of women, the body, nationalism, and intimacy using a variety of mediums. During much of the 1970's Wieland was consumed by the creation (and recovery) of making her single feature film "The Far Shore". At the beginning of the 1980's Wieland had (a long-overdue) creative rush and returned to art making. Her work from this era not only embraced femininity and sensuality, but put these elements at the forefront of her work. The hazy erotic aesthetic, inspired by mythology, was subversive and outside the tastes of the commercial art market, even as there was a renewed interest in figuration. Much of Wieland's work from the 1980's is characterized by pastels, invented feminine mythology and a (defiant) highly personal romanticism. This subtle work is a fine example of Wieland's romantic / mythological drawing. We believe that this is a depiction of the "3 Graces"; three iconic muses from Greek mythology that personified literature, science and the arts. Today, Joyce Wieland's 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.
