…what I am about to dance, is a roundabout dance, around myself. A dervish-like dance, a circular dance, a silent dance ... that disorients me, unbalances me, and sets before me, while I continue to see an image of myself, the truth on my inability to know the Truth. My knowledge blurred by ignorance, by prejudice, and by lies… …a wonderful condition that is difficult to grasp if you insist on seeing, and experiencing, the human condition only within the mono-dimensional space of the immanent. A unique condition is that of man, since he is gifted with Reason and Sentiment, simultaneously. Two different forces that, if combined, indicate a direction towards which man was not looking. A direction that, perhaps, leads to other cognizable conditions of a superior order…

‘Shall have to be about all night, for have charge of this particular bit of trench. Have now made close acquaintance with the brilliant lights we have seen breaking over No Mans Land. They are fired from a large pistol, one of which I have in my pocket now, also a supply of cartridges for same. On anything the least bit suspicious happening out in front during the hours of darkness, a shot from this pistol fired up in the air after the style of a rocket will produce a very brilliant light lasting over half a minute as it falls to the earth. It is a very useful affair, for the imagination absolutely runs riot during the darkness. The night is hardly half gone, but have used 12 or 14 cartridges already to convince the boys that there is nothing moving "out there".Lance Corporal Henry Buckle’s drawings and writings are a window onto the Western Front as one man saw it. His charming colour sketches are a rare and exquisite insight into trench life that cannot fail to amuse and move the observer. This book truly allows you to experience the Great War at first hand.

Joyce Wieland

Writings and Drawings 1952-1971

Author: Joyce Wieland

Publisher: Government Printing Office

ISBN: 9780889843219

Category: Art

Page: 219

Joyce Wieland (1930-1998) is legendary for her contribution to the development of contemporary visual arts in Canada. A self-described `cultural activist' she is best known for celebrating Canadian national identity and bringing forward feminist issues within the predominantly male art culture of the time. Initially a painter and filmmaker, she also embraced traditional women's media such as quilts and sewn collages. In her mind, the landscape and ecology of Canada was female. Issues of gender and nationality were interchangeable. Concern with the protection of Canadian confederation and gender issues would repeatedly surface in her quilts, films and assemblages. Wieland was left in the care of an older sister after the death of both of her parents. She took solace in drawing and creating comic strips. During her high-school years, she was encouraged to enroll in the visual art program. Later, work as a graphic designer and at an animation house provided her with techniques that would be used in future art production. In 1956, Wieland married the artist Michael Snow. Two years later, she had her first solo show and, by 1961, she was represented by Toronto's leading art dealer, Avrom Isaacs, of the Isaacs Gallery. Wieland then immersed herself in the New York art scene, relocating there with Snow in 1962. She turned to the underground filmmaking community. Most of her own films were made during her stay in the city and shown at local festivals. Many of Wieland's ideas, including nationalism and feminism were formulated in New York during this time away from Canada. Cooling Room II (1964) shows the influence of American pop culture and filmmaking on her work. Alongside a toy airplane and an image of a sinking ship, a heart cut out of red material hangs to dry on a clothesline. A series of coffee cups with lipstick stains mark the passage of time. The predominance of red and white suggest an equation between heartbreak, disaster and the colours of the Canadian flag. Confedspread (1967), playfully composed of numerous sewn squares of colorful plastic and synthetic fillers, is Wieland's first attempt at using the quilt format as a vehicle of expression. More quilts would follow: Reason Over Passion (1968) echoed the words of Pierre Trudeau. Her retrospective at the National Gallery in 1971 was its first ever for a living woman artist. In it, she introduced ideas of artistic collaboration to the public by contracting groups of sewers to help create the quilts. Joyce Wieland's prolific career lasted over thirty years and established her as an icon of Canadian art history. She is credited with introducing ideas and breaking conventions that contributed significantly to the development of contemporary art in Canada.

Skywriting by Word of Mouth

Author: John Lennon

Publisher: Harper Collins

ISBN: 0062319868

Category: Music

Page: 208

John Lennon wrote Skywriting by Word of Mouth, an impressive collection of writings and drawings, during Yoko Ono's pregnancy with Sean, and always planned to have it published. The book's publication was a wish that seemed to end with Lennon's assassination in 1980 and the theft of the manuscript from the Lennons' home in 1982. When it was recovered and first published in 1986, Skywriting received immediate critical and popular acclaim. Filled with Lennon's extraordinary creative powers and lavishly illustrated with his own drawings, the collection reveals his fertile creative spirit up close and in full force. Included in Skywriting are "Two Virgins," written when the public learned that John and Yoko were living together as husband and wife, and John's only autobiography, "The Ballad of John and Yoko." In addition there are notes on his falling in love with Yoko, the breakup of the Beatles, his persecution by U.S. authorities, and his withdrawal from public life. This is a book with John Lennon's spirit on every page—a spirit the world needs to remember.
