Joyce Wieland: Young Woman's Blues

Joyce Wieland was influenced by American comic strips, movies, and other forms of popular culture. With a strong background in film and animation, her work draws on the language of cinema as well as a wide range of artistic movements, including Dada and Pop. Wieland’s art often addresses themes of disaster and tragedy, as in Young Woman’s Blues, with its references to some of the personal difficulties that plagued the actress Elizabeth Taylor.
