Quote:
"By deliberately choosing to glorify the materials accessible to the shut-in housewife, [Joyce] Wieland has found a space to breathe. Cats, mice, the kitchen table and sink, teacups and teapots are all a part of her repertoire. Wearing the nametags that have been lavished upon her -- most significantly, 'the ultimate feminine artist' -- Wieland admits that domestic trappings have provided a strength for her work."
-- Debbie Magidson and Judy Wright
