William Perehudoff was one of the prairie artists who rose to prominence in the early 1970s, along with his wife Dorothy Knowles and his contemporaries the Regina Five. A large part of their national recognition resulted from the Emma Lake Artists’ Workshops, which featured visits from well-known artists such as American Colour Field painter Barnett Newman and New York-based art critic Clement Greenberg. By the time Artemis #3 was painted in 1972, Perehudoff had participated in five of these workshops and had found his painterly voice. The early 1970s were a significant time in the artist's rising career, and many of his strongest works are from this period. In Artemis #3, we see Perehudoff playing with colour and form to create a visual experience. This experience begins with the vibrant fuchsia background, then the large circle and the thick bands of colour, all complimenting one another in harmony. The viewer's eye then draws to the right of the painting, where the bands of colour narrow and switch to the opposite side of the colour spectrum, exhibiting intense greens and subtle hints of blue that lead off the the canvas.
