"...With its many eccentricities, it is a glyph of Wieland's artistic personality; a lyric vision tempered by an aggressive form and a visionary patriotism mixed with ironic self parody. It is a film to be seen many times." - P. Adams Sitney, Film Culture
Regarded as Canada’s foremost woman artist, Wieland produced an acclaimed body of work in a great variety of media, from drawing and painting to quilts and films. She gained a unique respect for incorporating strong personal statements in her work about issues of feminism, nationalism and ecology long before it had become fashionable to do so. Her retrospective at the Art Gallery of Ontario was the first-ever afforded a living Canadian woman artist.
