Art. Women's Studies. WILD WOMEN is a celebration of the wilderness as seen through the eyes of three women artists: Joyce Burkholder, Kathy Haycock and Linda Sorensen. The book presents reproductions of each artist's paintings, and photos of the artists at work in the landscape and in their studios followed by a series of conversations that illuminate and compare their individual approaches and techniques. WILD WOMEN: PAINTERS OF THE WILDERNESS is a beautiful art book that is also a strong statement by women about recording, sharing and preserving the Canadian wilderness. It introduces to a wider public a group of contemporary professional women painters who work together and support each other in their mutual goals. Each has a back-to-the land experience that draws her to this remote, rural area and connects her to the wilderness.
